The long green line led to Parkside Middle School on the west side of Manchester last week. Over 100 employees of the Fidelity Investment Company from the Merrimack facility descended on the school with paint, brushes and cleaning material and began to make the site look like new.
My children all attended Parkside and I can tell you that much work was needed. The men and women from Fidelity did a super job of becoming civically engaged by performing this public service. It was great to see them painting, planting grass and building benches for the school. The company does a great deal to become a partner in community projects.
When I arrived at the school, the workers were well on their way. It was a hot day but enthusiasm for the work kept everyone cool. As I walked through the building, I could see the fresh paint on the walls and the new look created by the bright colors. It was nice to see a work force doing good and feeling good about what they accomplished.
Hats off to Fidelity and all who gave a new facelift to Parkside Middle School. Great to see teamwork in action. Thank you, Fidelity!
