Boston, MA – Last week, 25 Southborough residents visited the Massachusetts State House for a day of activities hosted by Representative Carolyn Dykema, Senator Jamie Eldridge and the Southborough Senior Center.
“Getting to know my constituents and learn about what’s important to them is one of the best parts of my job,” Dykema said. “Hosting our guests for the day was a great opportunity to spend time together while sharing the rich history of our state during their first visit to the State House. The Senior Center was a big help coordinating the event and I’m looking forward to another visit again soon!”
“Helping constituents, especially our seniors, is what we pride ourselves on doing every day as legislators,” said Senator Eldridge. “I was honored to be able to tour the State House with our seniors and spend time with them and discuss the benefits available to them from the state government.”
“I was so happy Representative Dykema and Senator Eldridge took the time to host this event for our Southborough Seniors,” said Peg Leonard, Program Coordinator at the Southborough Senior Center. “They returned from the trip with so much enthusiasm about what they saw and learned. They were thrilled with the whole day. It was a joy working with Leah Robins to set this tour in motion. Thank you to all involved for a very memorable day!”
During their visit, the group took a tour of the State House including visits to the House and Senate chambers and the opportunity to look into the history of Southborough and the Commonwealth with a visit to the Special Collections of the State Library.
