Celebrating 100 years in Shelton

Wesley Village in Shelton recently honored several centenarians at their assisted and independent living communities.

Its residents gathered for their monthly birthday party, recognizing and honoring those born in May. The month’s festivities included resident Minnie Sutton, who will celebrated her 105th birthday on May 27.

Thinking of others

Crosby Commons resident Marion Prescott also celebrated her 100th birthday this past February. As part of her birthday wish, she and her friends at Crosby Commons worked together to create more than 35 gifts bags for families in need.

Prescott and her fellow residents recently donated the gifts to BH Care, a community health care provider serving the lower Naugatuck Valley, Greater New Haven and shoreline communities.

Wesley Heights and Crosby Commons are located on the Wesley Village campus at 580 Long Hill Ave. in Shelton.
