More than 100 people gathered recently to celebrate the fifth anniversary of The Moorings at Squantum Gardens and recognize how far the development had come.
Residents of the 223-unit Marina Bay housing community were joined by US Representative Stephen Lynch, Quincy Mayor Thomas Koch, Director of Quincy Elder Services Thomas Clasby, Moorings staff members, and executives representing Peabody Properties Inc.
Peabody Properties was the company behind the affordable-housing community designed to meet the special needs of seniors.
At the event, Peabody Properties Chief Executive Officer, Karen Fish-Will was joined by her sister, Melissa Fish-Crane, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, in leading a toast commemorating the inception of the community and in remembrance of their late father, former Peabody Properties President Edward Fish.
The Moorings at Squantum Gardens project was especially meaningful – both personally and professionally – to Fish, representatives said in a release.
According to a release, Peabody Properties organized the event in recognition of the many residents who have supported The Moorings at Squantum Gardens for the past five years.
“Our father was proud to have helped create this beautiful development,” said Melissa Fish-Crane. “He would have been so happy to see the how The Moorings has served the needs of its residents and become an integral part of the Quincy community.”
