The Orange Senior Leadership Program has developed several wonderful programs within the community.
The goal of this program is to provide intergenerational partnering between Orange seniors and fifth and sixth grade students of Orange schools.
The partnerships take place at the Senior Center, the Case Memorial Library, Silverbrook, Laurel Estates, or a senior’s home. The participants decide on the date and time.
The meetings take place after school or possibly Saturday or Sunday.
The student will read to the senior or play games such as Scrabble, Monopoly, Crosswords, etc. The visit could last for an hour or length of time decided upon by both participants.
What an enjoyable way to spend some time – sharing the enthusiasm of a child! This can be a very rewarding experience. It will encourage the child to read while also sharing time and interests with an older person.
If you are interested in this wonderful, satisfying project, call the Senior Center at 203-891-4784, or Louisa at 203-795-9030.
