Things We Just Did

Flower Pot Painting

On April 15th, we hosted a delightful event at GVSU's Allendale Campus, bringing together students and community members to paint flower pots for nursing home residents. Tables were set with paints and brushes, and participants eagerly transformed plain terracotta pots into colorful masterpieces.

Fourth Story Circle

Our Intergenerational Story Circles at Schuler’s Bookstore on March 16th was a hit! With support from SAGE and Grand Connections, and coffee and pastries courtesy of AARP, attendees shared heartwarming stories and connected across generations. The event featured participants sharing personal tales prompted by their favorite photographs.

We Look Forward to Seeing You

Let’s work together to create meaningful and long-lasting intergenerational relationships so older adults can offer younger adults life lessons learned through experience, and young adults can offer older adults renewed energy and a stronger desire to make the world better for generations to come.
