Kind gestures, no matter how small, have an incredible ability to create lasting joy and happiness for all parties involved. This certainly was true for the residents of Crosby Commons, an independent and assisted living community in Shelton, CT, as they worked to inspire New Haven schoolchildren. This mission was part of a project where volunteers created inspiring messages on lunch bags for local schools in hopes of reducing stigmas within their communities. After hearing about this cause, Crosby Commons residents helped make 100 inspirational lunch bags for students who participate in the Free Lunch Program. The bags were covered in drawings, colorful stickers, and quotes like “Happy Lunching”, “Do Great Things” and “Have a great meal!”
Crosby Commons Assisted Living Community at Wesley Village is the proud recipient of three prestigious Connecticut Assisted Living Association Awards (CALA), including one Humanitarian award, one Distinguished Resident Accomplishment Award, and one Distinguished Service Award.

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.
