Service Learning

Today we visited Bonaventure Senior Living Center and visited the Memory Care Unit. We sang three songs for them: She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain, This Land is Your Land and The Star Spangled Banner. After we sang we each visited with a resident. There were smiles all around. We know that our service today was making others happy and bringing back some good memories for them. The learning part of our visit is that we learned that people can have issues with their memory and how to talk with people who do have memory issues. Before we went read a great book about a little boy who helps a woman with memory issues remember things. It was called Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox.  The crew was proud to share all of the memories that the residents shared with them. Ask your child to tell you all about it. (To view the short video clip below, you will need to go directly to the crew blog if you get this post by email.)
