Hard to express the “magic”, the intangible, pure awesome feeling of love, joy and unity that took place Saturday 5/2/15.
Project Joy co-hosted with Living for Purpose Outreach “Grandparent’s Day” at AV Care Center. This was Project 130, one of many taking place thru-out the nation for the 17th Annual Big Sunday weekend.
The day started with a folkloric dance by the Pulido family (of Lancaster Girl Scout Troop 262). Priceless.
Then a brother, sister duo by Timothy and Olivia of Living Praise Christian Center. Heart warming.
Next we had a mime dance by the Parra family (mom Leslie, son Isaiah and young daughter Heaven, while Dad Daniel played sound tech :). Awe Inspiring.
The day continued with caricature drawings by Paul Williams (and his monkey), which the seniors loved!
We had a friendly game of Bingo with prizes, led by the wonderful young ladies of Girl Scout Troop 262. Super Fun!
Pam Boyd and Gwen Shim shared a duet with our “grandparents”. Enduring.
We snacked, chatted, took pictures, did sing a longs and really didn’t want the day to end.
The youth made beautiful cards and passed out colorful flowers to all our grandparents. Sweet.
To close out, musical artist Daniel Anthony led us in a beautiful song. Unifying.
As we were packing up and leaving, one of our “grandparent’s” asked “when will you guys be back?”. Another asked for a Big Sunday volunteer shirt “to remember the day by”.
I will post pictures soon and yes grandparent’s we will be back!!
