We all know that one person who selflessly spreads happiness and positivity to everyone they know. With this in mind, Crosby Commons Independent and Assisted Living Community decided to show one of their beloved residents just how special they really are. Through Crosby Common’s Journey of Dreams program, a program designed to make the various dreams of residents come true, “All about Peggie Day” was born.
When deciding on a resident to honor in the Journey program, Activities Director, Kelly Coppola factored in Margaret (Peggie) DeNicola’s demeanor and the positive energy she has brought to the community for the past two years. “What better resident than one who spreads happiness and positivity to all in the community!” Peggie will also celebrate a milestone birthday this year by turning 90 years old!
Members of Peggie’s family visited the community to celebrate with Peggy on her special day. The morning started with Peggie, the queen of crafting herself, and family members painting sun catchers, followed by a luncheon with Peggie's family and resident neighbors. There were gifts, well wishes, a Crosby cheerleading stint by the Crosby Team, a presentation by Kelly Coppola and a DVD movie filled with messages from Peggie’s friends and family. The afternoon continued with musical entertainment by Peggie's favorite, a Frank Sinatra impersonator, and concluded with Irish Soda bread and Irish coffee. Judging by the smile on Peggie’s face and the overwhelming excitement from the staff as well as her fellow residents, “All about Peggy Day” was a huge success!
