Ruth Duffy, First Place Painter at 94 Years Old!

Ruth Duffy, a 94 years old resident of Mystic River Homes Congregate, recently submitted one of her first paintings in the Groton Senior Center Art Show and won first place. Her painting was then sent to the Senior Expo at Conn College where she was awarded a second place ribbon.

Ruth joined a painting class taught by Laura Castagna, resident services coordinator, Mystic River Homes Congregate, a year and a half ago and has displayed a talent that she never knew existed. Her family is delighted, as is Ruth who is shy about all the “fuss.” Ruth is truly an example that we are never too old to learn.
