Mary Ann Griffiths, a chef at Crosby Commons Assisted Living Community at Wesley Village, was recognized by LeadingAge Connecticut as a “Hero of the Storm” on Tuesday, October 8th at the LeadingAge 2013 Annual Meeting held at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. Remembering the blizzard of this past year and the many difficulties that arose as a result of all the snow, the event highlighted the dedicated staff who went “above and beyond” throughout this time. Known for her quiet, willing, spirit of caring, Griffiths was nominated by Wesley Village for her leadership and commitment to residents and staff and for ensuring that residents’ dietary needs remained unchanged by the blizzard. Formally recognized by LeadingAge, she was honored as a “Hero of the Storm” and also given the opportunity to be photographed with WFSB meteorologist, Scot Haney, who also attended the event and recognized the nominees.
Griffiths was also awarded Honorable Mention for the 2013 LeadingAge Connecticut Employee of the Year Award in the spring. Wesley Village is proud to honor Mary Ann Griffiths, whose dedication and service to our community truly reflects the mission, vision and values of United Methodist Homes. Crosby Commons and Wesley Village are owned and operated by United Methodist Homes, a local faith-based not-for-profit organization in Shelton, CT.
