Puzzles to Remember
A few months ago, I was contacted by Vivian Hughes the community service coordinator with Pi Omicron Zeta Carroll County Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority , Inc. They are the Graduate chapter located in Carroll County Maryland. One of the sorority’s national initiatives is elder care.
This chapter was in the process of organizing a community service event to be held at West End Adult Day Care in Westminter, MD. This center provides services for seniors with dementia. Ms Hughes asked if my organization, PuzzlesToRemember, could send her some puzzles for the clients of the center, so puzzles were sent for their event.
We just received the following response:
“The puzzles you sent me were presented along with donated items from AARP, local business and national elder care organization to the center. We enjoyed being able to interact with the clients of the center. I just wanted to let you know that we did complete our initial project,that we had intended to do back in February during our state conference and will continue to partner with West End Place in the future.”
Here are a few photos from the event:
