The residents at Bayberry at Emerald Court, an assisted living community in Tewksbury, recently presented the Tewksbury Food Pantry with checks totaling more than $300. They raised the funds through a bake sale and homemade craft sale during National Assisted Living Week in September. Residents, staff and families baked and sold homemade fudge (the most popular) and a host of other sweet treats. 97 year-old resident Arthur Masse sold hand-crafted birdhouses, which he had been building for months leading up to the sale. As most of these seniors lived through the Great Depression, or at least felt the trickle-down effect of that time, it is especially important to them to know they are still capable of helping their local community.
