In recognition of women's history month, the City of Somerville will recognize a public schools employee and the nonprofit group CASPAR for their outstanding service to women.
Regina Bertholdo (left), of the Parent Information Center in the Somerville Public Schools, will receive the award March 21 at the Lowell Street Visiting Nurses' Association.
"This year we’re able to showcase the many connections and interests of the commission with our award winners, keynote address, and survey announcement," said Sonja Darai, director of the Office of the Somerville Commissions. "We’re happy to celebrate women’s history along with looking forward to the days to come."
CASPAR has helped those affected by substance abuse since 1970. Based on Highland Avenue, the agency has grown from humble beginnings into a full-service recovery and addiction source, supporting men and women who struggle with sobriety.
The award ceremony begins at 6 p.m., at 259 Lowell St..
