Grandparents’/Special Persons’ Day Thank You

It was wonderful to be with our Grandparents and Special Persons last week. So very many were moved by the experience and the hospitality. More than one told me they wished they could enroll! I told them many of us wish so, too!

A special thank you to our visitors and volunteers who helped to make the days beautiful.
