SALMON at Medway Hosts Grand Opening Gala

Oct 05, 2021 10:54AM ● By Chuck Tashjian
On September 14, SALMON Health and Retirement’s new Medway community opened its doors for their Grand Opening Gala. Masked attendees were ushered in through the front doors, warmly greeted by the sparkling chrome lettering: Whitney Place and The Willows at Medway, and chilled champagne. While some guests enjoyed the company of the entire SALMON family in the Bistro adjacent to the lobby, many attendees chose to embark on group scavenger hunts, with prizes in every corner of this brand-new campus, including candy in the game room, baskets of cookies in the Great Room, mini hand lotion samples at the campus Spa, Life Saver candies decorating the pool area, oranges in the gym, and baskets of SALMON visors in backyard. 
A catered party on the fourth floor highlighted the culinary offerings of the new community, with a raw bar, a cheese and antipasto station, a dessert table, chef station, and cocktail bar featuring SALMON’s signature cocktail, as well as the company of the location’s new Medway Residents.
After Executive Director Andy Freilich, and Matt and Andrew Salmon took turns welcoming the celebrants and thanking everyone who made such a grand opening possible, from the construction crews who built the campus, to the catering staff, to second-generation founders also present at the event, Danny and Dottie Salmon, State Representatives Brian Murray (D-Milford) and Jeffrey Roy (D-Medway) offered a proclamation from the state, noting that The Willows and Whitney Place at Medway will now be bringing more jobs, more opportunities, and a fantastic resource for the senior community to the Medway area. 
It was then that the first SALMON at Medway Resident, Dottie, cut the ceremonial ribbon held up by Danny and Dottie Salmon to mark the exciting new chapter.
