Director Williams has worked in the Town of Bridgewater since October 2019. During her time in Bridgewater, Director Williams has assisted in hosting numerous events for seniors at the Bridgewater Senior Center such as the New Years Eve Luncheon. She is also credited with expanding the Council on Aging’s newsletter, Top of the Hill, due to its popular demand.
“Throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Emily has emerged as a true leader,” Elder Affairs Commission Chairman David Frim said. “She has gone above and beyond not only by building the Senior Center into a thriving destination during our time of crisis, but also continuing to maintain connections with our most vulnerable citizens: the senior population.”
