Usually when we finish up one course, we like to do a service project and since it was the holiday season, we thought a visit to our local Senior Center was in order. The weekend before Christmas, we went to Guardian Angels by the Lake where many in our group spent the afternoon sharing Christmas goodies and visiting with the residents. It is always such a pleasure hearing the stories from people who have gathered so much wisdom and experienced so many things in their lives. My husband met an interesting guy named Marvin who shared his stories about WWII including how he was shot in the head and obtained a purple heart. He even went back to his room to get the proof. And Beverly proudly gave my husband a tour of her room at the facility. Love it!
Afterwards our group enjoyed a potluck Christmas dinner which was equally fabulous! Unfortunately, I had a horrible cold and had to miss all the fun, but I am thrilled that everyone had such a good time!
