PALs have a word with the wise

PALs shared some special moments with the senior citizens at Waterford Retirement Home on Wednesday the 14. The residents at the home shared their prized possessions with one another and the PALs. The show and tell visit was not only about the residence of the retirement home, but about what they had to share from their past.

While these items may seem trivial to some, their meaning runs deep for those who posses them. This experience will be with not only the residents, but also the student PALs for years to come.
