Follies Press Release

Friendship Home in Norwell held its third Follies variety show to a sold-out audience at the North River Community Church in Pembroke last week.  The inclusive community event showcased acts from 147 Friendship Home members, local bands, South Shore businesses that employ Friendship Home members, New England Village participants, Hull High’s theater arts students and many other supporters of Friendship Home.

“The Follies is a wonderful opportunity for our members to shine as they share the stage with their employers and other people in the community. We are so grateful to the North River Community Church who is such a gracious host. We are proud to offer an inclusive event that unites people with and without disabilities,” said Deb Mastro, Chair of the Friendship Home Follies and Job Developer who works to find employment opportunities for Friendship Home members.

Tiny & Sons Auto Glass in Pembroke served as T-shirt sponsor and several volunteers stepped up to make the night a huge success.
