Valentine’s Day at The Peninsula was celebrated not only with a festive party but entertainment by young ladies from the Girl Scouts troop 10101.
The youngsters shared their talents singing and reading poems to an attentive Peninsula audience at the assisted living and memory support community in Hollywood.
The highlight was when resident Gloria Humes gathered the youngsters around her to read aloud from the book, “Queen of Hearts” by Mary Englebright. She captivated everyone with her dramatic reading of the story about Valentine’s Day and the adventures of Ann Estelle. The girl scouts hung on her every word.
Programs bringing together people of different generations are part of the ongoing activities planned at The Peninsula. From local schools, church groups and scout troops, children come to the assisted living community to visit residents on many different occasions.
Our residents enjoy these opportunities to interact with the children and the feeling is mutual. For the children, they enjoy being the center of attention while they perform and the residents are very generous with their appreciation. It helps the children develop their social skills and the energy of the children is infectious.
