Make a wish VSGVaugust 2016

At Villa St. Gabriel Villa, Ray Marcotte’s wish came true thanks to the generosity of a Chelmsford car dealership.  Ray’s wish to go for a car ride to get ice-cream with the windows rolled down listening to tunes became a reality on Wednesday August 17th.  Ray got much more than what he had asked for thanks to Josée Belanger-Leroux and Belanger Ford.  Not only were the windows rolled down, the roof was rolled back as well for Ray’s ride in a 2016 ford convertible mustang, courtesy of Belanger Ford.   As a young man who grew up blind, Ray’s family members would often take him out for ice-cream, with Ray fondly remembering the wind blowing against his face during the ride listening to his favorite country music.  Joining Ray on his special day was his brother-in-law, his primary care giver Nicole Young as well as Ray Ingriselli, Site Administrator of Villa St. Gabriel Villa.  The group went for a ride to Lively, then back to Chelmsford Dairy Queen where the staff assisted to make Ray’s special treat.  The residents and staff of Villa St. Gabriel Villa also gathered to send Ray off.
