PEPPERELL — Over 100 people gathered at the Albert Harris Center to wish Director Susan McCarthy a fond farewell and happy retirement.
Although McCarthy is not a senior yet, she is leaving her post after 10 years to spend more time with her family.
McCarthy’s final message to attendees was the hope that “all who attend the Center will keep the love going” and that she was leaving the Center but not the community.
McCarthy will continue to volunteer throughout Pepperell in organizations that she is passionate about.
Council on Aging board member Harvey Serreze referred to Susan as an amazing, compassionate, and unselfish person who would do anything for the seniors. A “Dazzling Diamond Award” was presented to Susan because she dazzles everyone who meets her.
Susan McCarthy will be dearly missed at the Albert Harris Center.
