Nashoba Park Resident Celebrates Lifetime Achievement Award

AYER, MA – Ann Laggis, an accomplished artist and active member of the Ayer community, recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award at Nashoba Park, recognizing her long list of accomplishments throughout her life and honoring her personal history.

Born in Lynn, Massachusetts, Ann moved to Ayer in 1947 after marrying her husband Peter. A Cub Scout and Girl Scout troop leader, Ann loved to teach sewing. She worked at the Ayer Community Hospital for a number of years in the coffee shop before becoming involved with the Friends of the Hospital and raising vital funds for its work. 

Two of Ann’s greatest joys are gardening and the arts, and she continues to create art through Nashoba Park’s EnrichedLIFE Programming. She is most proud, however, of her four children, six grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren. 

“The Lifetime Achievement Award is about recognizing that every single person in our community has a story to tell,” said Kimberly Gagnon, Executive Director of Nashoba Park. “The residents here have done so much in their lives, and it’s important that we honor that and share their stories with others. For Ann, we also wanted to highlight her passion for art and wonderful talent.”
Nashoba Park is a Volunteers of America Massachusetts non-profit Assisted Living community located in Ayer. For more information about Nashoba Park, please visit
