Binnall House Celebrates RHF’s 55 years of Affordable Housing in Gardner, MA

Binnall House will be celebrating the 55th Anniversary of Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF), its sponsoring organization on Tuesday June 6th 2017 at 11:00 AM.

Binnall House, located at 125 Connors Street is a 134-unit, affordable housing community for seniors and part of the RHF organization.  With its convenient location, Binnall House is a preferred choice for seniors in the community and has a very active resident population.   To keep their residents busy, there are an abundance of programs available, but on a sunny day, you can usually find a group of residents sitting outside on the many benches surrounding the site.

About Retirement Housing Foundation
