Program is the second in the spring education series

SPRINGFIELD—Glenmeadow will present a panel of political analysts who will lead a discussion on President Donald Trump’s actions in office thus far at Western New England University on Friday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The election of Trump as the 45th president of the United States polarized the country. In Glenmeadow’s program, called “The First 100 Days: Governing Across the Great Divide,” our panel of experts will look at Trump’s first 100 days in office and discuss his performance on topics including domestic and foreign policy, health care, immigration, polling and media coverage.

Political analyst Bill Scher, a contributing editor to POLITICO Magazine and the founder of the blog will serve as moderator. Other panelists will include Tim Vercellotti, professor of political science at Western New England University and director of the New England Polling Institute; Tony Cignoli, a political consultant; Ron Chimelis, a columnist for the Springfield Republican; and Marie Angelides, an immigration attorney with her own firm and Chair of the Longmeadow Select Board.

The program will be offered by Glenmeadow at Western New England University in Sleith Hall’s Wood Auditorium, at 1215 Wilbraham Road.

The program is free, but seating is limited, and registration is required; call (413) 567-7800 or email Visit for more information.

About Glenmeadow

In the 1800s, elderly individuals without family or means were sent to live at what was called “the poor farm.”  In 1884, a group of civic leaders raised funds among themselves and other area families and purchased a house on Main Street in Springfield’s south end. Quickly outgrowing that house, land was purchased on the corner of Chestnut and Carew streets, where a new home was constructed and opened in 1900.  In 1960, the name was changed to Chestnut Knoll, and in 1992, it began to admit men.

In 1993, the organization purchased a 23-acre parcel in Longmeadow to build a new community that would provide both independent living and assisted living in one building with various common areas.  This was a new concept known as a continuing care retirement community.  Existing residents from the old Chestnut Knoll property were moved to the new campus in 1997.  Shortly after the move, the board voted to change its legal name to Glenmeadow to coincide with the name being used by the developer of the property.
