Independent Living at Palm Village Retirement Community

St. Patrick’s Day Visit from Community Youth Ministries

By Dan Pimentel

On St. Patrick’s Day, Palm Village was visited by a group from the Community Youth Ministries afterschool program at Great Western Elementary. The children came to have a party with our residents, and brought bags they had made to give away as gifts to the residents. The children also brought coloring pages and crayons to do as an activity and letters they had written to the residents. One of the goals was to seek out pen pals for the students to create an ongoing relationship between younger and older. The event was a hit for all ages and the children were thrilled when they received return letters from our residents.
