Iam a 60 year old woman who has lived and worked in the Worcester area my entire life. Having lived off Shrewsbury Street most of my life , as my family did , I have enjoyed the spirit of community . It has also been exciting to watch Shrewsbury Street grow, change and embrace new cultures over the past several years. Of course, I am Italian , but like many, I am half Irish! Therefore, I have also been active in the Irish Community as a member of the St Patrick’s Parade in Worcester, The Emerald Club and other organizations including my church, St. Columba in Paxton. I have enjoyed many local activities and love to volunteer for charities in Worcester. One place near and dear is the Mustard Seed, where I have gone with different groups including Notre Dame Long Term Care with a hot meal.
