Serving the Hartford Community

Serving the Hartford Community

We were happy to welcome Gov. Dan Malloy to Peter’s Retreat on December 14, the anniversary of the tragedy at Sandy Hook. In Gov. Malloy’s words: “It’s my belief that the best way to honor those we lost is to find again the spirit of compassion and togetherness that we felt in the days that followed the heartbreaking events at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Donate to a local charity, volunteer your time in service to your community or simply come together with friends and family and appreciate the time that we have together.”
In this spirit, Gov. Malloy worked in the kitchen at Peter’s Retreat with several residents, helped prepare dinner, served folks and then sat and visited for quite a while, showing a genuine warmth and presence. Resident Evelyn C. fondly remembered her encounter with the Governor, stating “He was very friendly. My sister was very excited and we enjoyed sharing with him in the kitchen. It was a pleasure meeting him”. We are glad to be able to count Gov. Malloy as a part of our extended “Peter’s Retreat family.” At the same time, our hearts go out to the friends and families of those lost a year ago at Sandy Hook.
