WHAT a Weekend!
MANY thanks to the 50+ volunteers who showed up to help with the special spring cleanup for seniors. We worked at the homes of twenty-three of our senior friends, one with disabilities in Albany and the rest members of Saratoga Senior Center. Volunteers from all walks of life came together, including Saratoga High School Key Club members and sailors from the Milton Naval Base.
Our results included loads of leaves raked, lawns mowed, and branches picked up. We also planted flowers in the gardens and smiles on the faces of many seniors living alone after the loss of their spouses or otherwise simply struggling with everyday simple chores like raking. Some, just very lonely, were overjoyed to know they are not forgotten.
We also owe a very special thanks to Hewitt’s Garden Center of Wilton for their donation of flowers for each and every one of the homes of the Saratoga seniors we served.
Hard to tell who came out ahead: the seniors or the volunteers!
