Celebrating country western in Shelton

Crosby Commons residents Hank Gambaccini and Corrine Sharp drink sarsaparilla floats for Country Western Day.


Staff and residents put on their cowboy hats and saddled up their horses for Country Western Day at Crosby Commons assisted living community at Wesley Village in Shelton .

The event featured a chuck wagon-style barbecue dinner, water pistol shooting lessons and country music. Wanted posters were hung around the entire community, announcing a reward for the return of a few “notorious” outlaws, whose intimidating photos strangely resembled those of several Crosby residents.

Sarsaparilla floats were served and cowboy hopefuls were given a chance to take a rope in their hands and lasso a wild pony.

Crosby Commons is an assisted and independent living community at Wesley Village. It is owned and operated by United Methodist Homes, a local faith-based nonprofit organization based in Shelton. For information call Executive Director Lois Poutney at 203-225-5501.
