Thank heavens for air conditioning!! I so miss not being outside most of the afternoon and evening! In this heat, I’m totally lacking “the zippity part” of my “do dah day”!
One of our seniors heard a sad comment from one of the numerous kids who enjoy sitting in the shade on the Senior Centers patio out front. The boy stated that the seniors don’t like them. That is not the case at all, what many of us don’t like is the trash some of the kids leave laying around on our patio and the surrounding area. There aren’t many mornings when there is no trash to pick up which is sad because there is a garbage bin sitting right there.
It saddens me to arrive at the center to find out one of our elderly elders (there are young elders then there are the elderly elders, age eighty five plus), picked up massive amounts of garbage when she arrived early to our center. It is not right that the young people make work for the elderly when it would be much easier for them to pick up their own garbage and not spit sunflower seeds all over for us to pick up and sweep up. We want the front of our building to look nice for all to enjoy.
If your child/children like to hang out at the park, most likely they seek shade on our patio. Parents, would you please stress to your kids that we want to be friends with them and to please NOT make work for the seniors.
