We welcome Erin Reilly to our team here at Goshen Community Care and Hospice! We look forward to working with you!
I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve as the Goshen Community Care and Hospice Coordinator.Erin Reilly, 2020
My name is Erin and I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I grew up in Goshen and live here with my daughters, Rita and Brooke. Rita is a freshman at SUNY Morrisville, studying Equine Business Management. Brooke is a 4th grader at Goshen Center School. We live with our 2 dogs, 3 Guinea pigs, horse and flock of chickens and ducks.
I am a volunteer EMT with the Goshen Fire Company and serve as the Secretary for the Company. I also work at the firehouse doing maintenance and custodial duties. I was just re-elected to the Recreation Commission for my 4th term. Brooke and I are communicants of St. Thomas of Villanova church and I help teach the GIFT program for religious education.
My girls and I enjoy volunteering for various events and programs around town, especially during the fair at the American Legion booth and library book sale tent. We are always up for an adventure and enjoy the various hiking trails and outdoor activities Goshen has to offer. I look forward to meeting everyone and serving the needs of the community.
On November 3, 2020 Goshen Community Care & Hospice received a check in the amount of $500. From the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal through its Vicariate Outreach Program. The funding will help Goshen Community Care & Hospice continue its mission of Community Service in Goshen. We thank the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal program for helping us during this difficult year.
About the Archbishop Annual Appeal- Since 1981, the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal has been able to assist tens of thousands of people- regardless of race, religion, or color—across the Archdiocese of Hartford with health care, education, housing, emergency expenses and in numerous other areas. It is through the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Vicariate Outreach Program and the generosity of its donors that the Appeal is able to assist a wide array of community-based charities throughout Hartford, New Haven and Litchfield Counties.
Due to Covid/CDC restrictions, our annual “Light up a Life” ceremony will not be held as an in person event this December. Instead we will be videotaping the ceremony around mid-December and will then post a link to our site for public viewing.
Mid-December please visit the the “Light up a Life ” events page for access to the video link. Apologies to everyone who looks forward to starting off the holiday season with this lovely event.
