HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – A creative birthday gift Sunday for a resident of Holyoke’s Mont Marie Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center.
Ann O’Toole decided to surprise her mom, Mary O’Connor, on her 86th birthday with a Thriller flash mob performance courtesy of the Artistic Dance Conservatory of East Longmeadow.
Ann said she was happy that everything fell into place for her mom’s big day.
“I was thrilled. I decided that, at least I would try to get it to happen,” Ann told 22News. “I contacted the dance academy first and then I contacted Mont Marie and everyone was good with it. It happened and I can’t believe it.”
The members of the dance group said they were thrilled to have been asked to perform on this very special occasion to wish Mary O’Connor a very memorable 86th birthday.
