STOW, MASSACHUSETTS--This past Sunday, three young men hosted a "meet and greet", to welcome their new neighbors into their home so they could introduce themselves.
Bobby Yip, Adam Wakefield and Bill Doyle recently moved into their new home after sharing a house in another town. Their open house may have gone a long way to alleviating some of the worries that people sometimes have when men with developmental disabilities move into the neighborhood.
"They put a notice in the mailbox with their picture on it. It was nice, this is very nice," new neighbor Virginia Benjamin told the Beacon Villager. "We all got invitations. I felt it was very important to hear these people tell us what it was all about."
"I'm very pleased. I feel very comfortable about this happening on Packard Road."
