PHOTOS: Big Hearts, Little Hands at Willard School

Seniors and kids pair up for a performance and an afternoon tea.

From the Willard PTO:

Big Hearts Little Hands is Willard’s gift to the senior citizens of our community. An annual tradition for 20+ years, it is a wonderful opportunity for our children to learn the gift of service, and make intergenerational connections. The PTO invites about 15 nursing homes, and it is the highlight of the week for many of their residents.

Friday's event began with a choral concert from kindergarteners and fourth-graders and continued through the afternoon in the school's gym, where students served their senior guests tea and coffee to accompany a buffet packed with sweet treats. Before heading home, each of the seniors was to receive a carnation and a goodie bag, filled and decorated by students.
