On Thursday, September 29, 2022, the Cambridge Housing Authority welcomed more than 200 attendees to its Revitalization of Millers River ribbon cutting marking the end of construction to modernize the property. The event brought many familiar faces together who worked hard or were in support of this project to celebrate alongside the building’s residents.
CHA Executive Director, Michael J. Johnston, kicked off the remarks portion of the event, which also featured testimonials from two beloved Millers River residents, Nancy Travers and Charles Prader, both of whom received strong applause at the conclusion of their moving remarks. A group of invited guests then moved to the Lambert Street building entrance to officially cut the ribbon centered around 41-year Millers River resident, Doris Magliozzi, while ceremony attendees were invited to tour resident units on the upper floors.
“I was so happy to have been thought of,” Magliozzi said. “This building means a lot to me, I have so many cherished memories here with loved ones.”
Following the event, the Cambridge Housing Authority hosted a catered resident dinner featuring music, dance parties, and giveaways in appreciation of their patience during construction.
