Benchmark Senior Living, in Leominster, invited a full cadre of animals for their petting zoo when celebrating their executive director David Price, who was just named Massachusetts Assisted Living Executive Director of the Year. His senior residents rightly decided live animals and a dunk tank was the perfect way to honor the recipient of the coveted award.
