Youth express appreciation to senior citizens

Want to live in a great community? You already do! It is the thoughtful, caring actions of residents in a community, passed down from generation to generation, that truly enriches us and makes a community great. Here in Strawberry and Pine, acts of kindness are habitual. This was demonstrated on Valentine’s Day, when youth from the Pine-Strawberry School Builder’s Club (a junior Kiwanis group) paid a visit to the Senior Dining Room to reach out in friendship and appreciation to senior citizens who were gathered there for lunch. The young people presented each senior with a gift; a flower and a poem of gratitude. The poem entitled “Friends” expressed the beauty, wisdom and spirit of friendship.
