Our affordable properties often host fabulous resident events to celebrate the holidays. Sheila Buonaugurio, Resident Services Coordinator of Hanover Legion, and Amelia Davis, Rental Manager of Lincoln School Apartments, both did an excellent job putting these parties together for their residents to enjoy in 2022. Jackie Castaneda was recently welcomed back to Pelham Apartments along with the new addition of Olga Timchenko at Saugus Commons who both worked on a significant number of certifications for each property, well done!
