We wish to thank everyone who reached out to our family with an incredible outpouring of friendship, kind words, and acts of charity following the death of our beloved father, husband, and grandfather, Fiorindo Antonelli.
We cannot express accurately with words how grateful we are for such a special outpouring of emotion and kindness from all of you who reached out to us during this difficult time.
It is during times like these that we all come to realize what community and love are all about, how our suffering is made easier to bear by the presence of friends and those who care.
One of the miracles of Encore Boston Harbor’s success is its workforce and how the workforce was hired.
Encore Boston Harbor deserves an award for hiring a multi-cultural, gender mixed, geographically correct workforce.
No Federal or State hiring laws were overlooked, all hiring was not left to chance or personal whim.
Hiring was done by the numbers, with a sense of filling quotas, in some cases, and in creating a workforce that included people from all walks of life and all races and colors.
The city needs to do the same.
In last week’s Leader Herald we revealed that the city hall workforce is woefully out of tune with the city’s multi-racial makeup at this point. Had Encore hired the way the city hires, the company would have been taken to court for committing civil rights violations.
It is to Encore’s credit that every effort was made to hire without racial or color lines, and gender or sexual preference conditions.
Meat eaters look at this treat and wonder how anyone eating it can stand to fork it into their mouths.
But let me tell you, this little plate of goodies is all about noshing on fabulously healthy and tasty vegetables – all of them from the Market Basket, two or three plates full of them not costing even $6.00.
You can eat tom of three plates of this stuff in an afternoon and not put on an ounce of weight.
