(Setauket, NY) So far, 2017 has been a very good year for Jefferson’s Ferry housekeeping employee Agustin Carrasco. Augie, as he’s known to the residents and his Jefferson’s Ferry co-workers, was named Employee of the Month for January. Then, more recently, Augie became a naturalized United States citizen. Augie has worked for Jefferson’s Ferry, a Life Plan Community, since he first came to the United States from the Dominican Republic 5 years ago.

Several days after Augie was sworn in as an American citizen, Jefferson’s Ferry management and the housekeeping department surprised Augie with a luncheon held in his honor, celebrating both his Employee of the Month recognition and his newly minted citizenship.
The festive luncheon celebration included 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 pie). The dining room was festooned with flags and balloons, and Augie was presented with a USA shirt and an Employee of the Month plaque.
“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.
