Be a Pen Pal

Our Riverdale School Pen Pals

In the 2011-2012 academic year, NewBridge is piloting a pen pal program between residents in Assisted and Independent Living, and 5th grade students at the nearby Riverdale School, which is one of four elementary schools in the Dedham Public School system. Residents and students exchange letters monthly, sharing personal information and experiences from their current lives and from the past.

If you are interested in participating in next year’s Pen Pal program, please contact Multigenerational Program Coordinator, Lynda Bussgang at 781-234-9217 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
