Genesis Club news...

Thank You to our  Sponsors!

We are thrilled to announce…

Genesis Club has purchased a brand new guest house to accommodate colleagues attending training.  The house has more room to stretch out and gather; 14 rooms overall, nine bedrooms, and will soon be able to provide accommodations to colleagues who need handicap accessibility.

The new guest house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 and is full of charm and character.  Built in 1897, by Clarance A Chandler, who was superintendant of the Washburn Shoppes at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.  He was a machine inventor who owned a patent for a grinding twist drill.

One of the best experiences during Clubhouse training is the time colleagues spend with each other at the guesthouse. 

We're looking forward to training colleagues from all over the world in 2014!

It's also not apparent that Kevin L. Bradley, the lanky man with wire-framed glasses who always has time for questions from members and staff, is the club's founding executive director.

"He's modest and unassuming and just such an anchor of Genesis," said Charles Lidz, a former president of the club and a research professor of psychiatry and sociology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. "A number of members of Genesis have a personal, special relationship with him."

Now 25 years after the clubhouse was established, Mr. Bradley has been selected to receive the Telegram & Gazette's Public Service Award.
