On Monday, April 13, 2015, The Arc of the South Shore hosted family and friends, as well as 3 town officials from the Weymouth Planning and Community Development Department. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the recent renovations to the restrooms at The Arc of the South Shore’s Day Program space. With CDBG funding, The Arc of the South Shore was granted $112,000 to complete all of the renovations. The town has also funded a window replacement project in the past. The Arc of the South Shore is extremely grateful to the Mayor of Weymouth and the Planning and Development Department for their continued support.
