NetView members enjoy Breakfast at The Bridge in Johnston


It was called “Breakfast at The Bridge” and featured nearly 40 members from NetView, a professional referral organization made up of people from assisted living communities, senior centers, nursing homes and other professionals in the important local industry.

“Our meetings take place once a month at area facilities,” offered Michael Mangasarian, the Sales/Marketing Director at The Bridge at Cherry Hill, which is an award-winning retirement/assisted living and nursing home facility owned and operated by the Century Park Community. “Everyone seemed to really enjoy the event.”

However, the “Breakfast at The Bridge” was much more than your ordinary food and networking meeting.

Attendees were treated to The Bridge’s near unmatched hospitality and what people rated as “one of the best breakfasts we’ve had at meetings.”

That was the result of Mangasarian and MaryAnn Grace, long-time Executive Director of The Bridge and Executive Chef Marvin Carter’s skilled kitchen crew once again rolling out their famous red-carpet hospitality.

“What a bountiful breakfast,” was among the many kudos from the morning’s NewView guests. “This is what (you) could call an extraordinary food fest; a special way to start the day.”

The menu began with assorted coffees and juices and included home fries scrambled eggs, Cherry Hill cheese omelets, bacon, sausage, breakfast sandwiches, assorted muffins and fresh fruit prepared and served from Carter’s kitchen.

The two-hour plus highly informative networking session also featured a guest speaker from Surv – which is a local company founded by a recent college graduate to assist people with daily tasks that may require additional help to perform such as moving furniture in their apartment, mowing the grass and anything in between.

Grace, who has hosted many memorable professional social successes at The Bridge, was thrilled with the morning’s turnout and offered “everything went incredibly well. This was one of our largest attended professional events we’ve had in recent years; we look forward to what comes next!"
