JUNIPER VILLAGE AT PARAMUS: One of the events we held during Active Aging Week was a celebration of our resident, Cris Cusack. Cris was an avid long distance runner who also completed his degree in English Literature. From 1962-1979, he wrote many short stories about running, one of them he entered into a contest and was one of the finalists. Juniper partnered with Cris to compile his life's work and "pride and joy" into one anthology entitled "The Complete Crispin." We celebrated his achievements with a Q&A session and a champagne toast. Cris has signed a copy of his book for Juniper residents to borrow. We are also continuing this celebration and having him read his book aloud as a program here at our community.
