#‎RedSoxNation‬ at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center!
A special green visitor came to HRC last week. On the eve of the opening day game at Fenway, Red Sox mascot Wally the Green Monster stopped by HRC, bringing with him the team's 2013 World Series trophy. Residents had a great time posing for pictures and basking in that trophy glow. Here's hoping for another win this year! ‪#‎GoSox‬!

As we close out this year of recovery for those affected by the tragic events at last year’s Boston Marathon, we think of all who stood up to acts of aggression in ways large and small and declared themselves #BostonStrong.
