Celebrating a 100th birthday with 100 Yankee hats in Shelton

Anna Mae Finnucan, a resident at Crosby Commons assisted living community in Shelton, celebrated her 100th birthday on Nov. 6.

A longtime New York Yankees fan, Anna Mae requested a Yankees-themed party and received a donation of 100 New York Yankees baseball caps for the occasion.

The hats were distributed at the party and given out “to Yankees fans only,” according to Anna Mae’s wishes. A group photo of Anna Mae and her fellow Yankees fans was taken and a bouquet of flowers, along with a New York Yankees birthday cake, were presented to her for the birthday celebration.
