Birthdays don’t stop just for pandemics.

Some Sudbury, MA residents got creative to make sure Anna Tabasky’s 12th Birthday did not go uncelebrated.

Anna Tabasky has Down Syndrome and has been looking forward to her birthday for months, according to the article. Then the shutdowns for coronavirus hit.

Her mother Kerri Tabasky was undaunted.

She worked with speech pathologist Lindsey Carapezza to have 50 cars carrying friends and family drive-by last Friday in the rain to wish Anna happy birthday from a safe distance, stated.

According to, later in the day, Anna had a video chat with all her friends, and some dedicated people used their creative skills to make this Anna’s biggest birthday celebration so far.

Happy Birthday, Anna!
