Intergenerational Memorial Day Program at Barnstable Senior Center

On Thursday, May 23, 2019, the Barnstable Senior Center and the Veterans Services Division

held their Annual Intergenerational Memorial Day Celebration in honor of veterans. Veterans and Barnstable High School students enjoyed breakfast and a round-table discussion.  This event is always a memorable and moving experience.  World War II Veterans Joe Gentile and Minos Gordy were joined by Vietnam Veteran Rick Diani to raise and lower to half-staff the new American flag that Veterans Services Assistant Director Scott Dutra gave to the Senior Center.  Making the day all the more memorable was that it was Minos Gordy’s 90th birthday.  Mr. Gordy was serenaded with “Happy Birthday” by the crowd.

BARNSTABLE TOWN, MA has been identified as one of the happiest small towns
Barnstable Ranked #11 out of 20 by Top Counseling Schools

Happiness is subjective but certain factors can definitely induce more happiness/endorphins than others. Like living in a small city where you have wide open spaces, beautiful views, easy commute, less pollution, and a pace that is just right for you to enjoy life. For the more practical minded of us, small cities offer more opportunity to save and enjoy a higher standard of living because things are not as expensive.

These metrics were examined:

Poverty Rate – A low poverty rate is a good indicator of a healthy economy and happy residents.
Population –Towns with a population of below 100,000 were considered.
Median Household Income – The median household income is a good indication of the standard of living enjoyed by the residents.
Median property value – A healthy real estate market and higher percentage of home ownership leads to financial security, asset creation and happier residents.
Education – The percentage of bachelor’s degree holders vis a vis the population of a place were considered.
Employment and unemployment rate – Having a job and earning well is important to one’s well-being and happiness.
Crime and safety –Here the overall crime rate per 100,000 people was considered.  You can read more about the 20 Happiest Small Towns in America

 - Promotion of veteran telecommunicator Ross Lloyd to our lead supervisor for the unit. Supervisor Lloyd takes great pride in developing and supervising our new staff.

- Worked through a 6 week complete renovation of our center in a less than ideal temporary room.

- Became a wireless direct answering point by being the first place to pick up the phone when you call 911 on your cell phone in the Town of Barnstable. This saves time and confusion by eliminating transfers from an off Cape call center to us.

- Several of our dispatchers received awards and recognition for a job well done.

- Development and implementation of a Training program currently being used to train new hires with our own qualified staff.

- Finally, probably the largest undertaking of all, was the successful collaboration with the Hyannis Fire Department as we began complete dispatch services for them last summer.

You may find it hard to thank them in person as they work around the clock, tucked away within the walls of the Barnstable Police Department. On behalf of all of the sworn officers of the BPD -- I thank you for your hard work, exceptional customer service and professionalism.
