The Boston Bruins have signed General Manager Don Sweeney to a multi-year contract extension. “We are proud to extend Don Sweeney to a multi-year contract as General Manager of the Boston Bruins,” said Bruins CEO Charlie Jacobs. “Under his management, the Boston Bruins have been one of the winningest franchises in the league and a perennial playoff contender year in and year out. While we recognize there is work to be done to achieve the ultimate goal of bringing the Stanley Cup back to Boston, I’m confident that Don’s commitment to being best-in-class on and off the ice will help us climb that mountain once again.” “Having had the pleasure of working closely with Don for more than a decade, I’ve seen firsthand his tireless work ethic when it comes to all facets of front office management,” said Bruins President Cam Neely. “He remains committed to doing whatever it takes to give the Boston Bruins the best chance to win every season. I look forward to continuing to work with Don as we endeavor to bring another championship to this city and our fans.” Sweeney was named the eighth general manager in the history of the Boston Bruins before the 2015-16 season.

meridian house celebrates 50th anniversary
On Tuesday at the Cottage Park Yacht Club the Meridian House staff, as well as past and current residents, supporters and special guests, celebrated 50 years as the first and oldest residential addiction treatment program in Boston.
During the event Meridian House honored staff members and aired a 50th anniversary video. Guests also heard from alumni speakers that talked about how the Meridian House changed their lives.
Rep. Adrian Madaro, Chair of Substance Abuse and Mental Health, was the evening’s keynote speaker and talked about the impact the Meridian House has had in the community for the past five decades.
The celebration was also used as a platform to launch the inaugural John Meaney Award and present the award to Meaney himself.
Meaney, a former Meridian House resident, is 36 years in recovery. Since Meaney graduated from the program in 1986 he has been a consistent support for the Meridian House and its residents. Every year on his anniversary of getting sober he brings residents pizza and tells his story.
Over the course of the past five decades, Meridian House, working through North Suffolk Mental Health Association, has helped hundreds and hundreds of people find their way to recovery since its inception in the fall of 1971.
