A Scoop Special Article

  • As many of you know, Barbara Friedman co-founded Boston Bridge. But as many may not know her co-founder was Elana Kieffer. Elana moved to New York City a few years ago, leaving Boston Bridge behind, but always remaining a loyal member and advocating for BB in her professional life. Elana actually was the first Scoop editor. She recently sent Barbara this wonderful article about her grandmother that appeared in a blog written by a New York resident. In this season of family and caring, it seemed the perfect time to highlight one of our own. Esther is the embodiment of aging in place!  Enjoy the blog!

Happy Holidays to All, and May 2020 Be One of Kindness!

We look forward to seeing you January 15th.

Barbara Friedman and Colleen Morrissey, Boston Bridge Board Members
