An Ice Cream Connection in Bristol
During July and August, Amodio, a 29-year employee, has sponsored an ice cream social at the coffee shop, which is part of the Bristol Senior Center (and located in the same building as the BBHD).
“I am proud of these volunteers and how dedicated they are to food safety. Providing summertime ice cream is a way to say thanks,” Amodio said.
For the past several years the Bristol Burlington Health District has provided food safety training for the coffee shop volunteers, who always participate in the classroom exercises and genuinely want to learn about the subject matter.
AFSCME Local 1303-114 represents 40 BBHD employees.
“I really respect the volunteers of the coffee shop. They are a great group of women. They take pride in their cooking and they work hard to provide great food to our senior citizens,” Amodio said.
Amodio also takes great pleasure from interacting with the seniors.
“I enjoy taking my morning break at the coffee shop. Over the years I have met so many interesting people who have shared some great stories of old time Bristol. I’ve even met a few seniors from New York who share my passion for all things Brooklyn. It’s just a great resource for the community”
