Agustin "Augie" Carrasco, a housekeeping employee at life plan community Jefferson's Ferry in South Setauket, NY, recently was feted at a surprise luncheon by management and the housekeeping department for being named Employee of the Month for January and more recently becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen.

"We're very proud of Augie and what he's accomplished as a member of our team," said Director of Housekeeping Patti Gallagher. "His work ethic, along with the respect and care he shows to the residents and his co-workers, are nothing short of exemplary," Jefferson's Ferry President and CEO Robert E. Caulfield added.

Carrasco has worked for Jefferson's Ferry since first coming to the United States from the Dominican Republic 5 years ago. The celebratory luncheon featured an all-American meal of hotdogs, fried chicken, potato salad, macaroni salad and coleslaw, topped off with a red, white and blue trio of desserts (cherry, apple and blueberry pies). The dining room was festooned with flags and balloons, and Carrasco was presented with a USA shirt and his Employee of the Month plaque.
