Church Youth to honor local grandparents

Youth of the Calvary Temple Assembly of God, with the help of Wal-Mart, will be providing flower arrangements to residents of Shuffield Nursing Homes to honor local grandparents on National Grandparent’s Day, Sept. 10. More than 2,500 Wal-Mart stores across the country awards local groups $300 for a senior citizen development project, totaling $750,000 nationwide. In the spirit of Grandparent’s Day, each project must involve interaction between the members of youth and senior citizens. National Grandparent’s Day was established to champion the cause of lonely elderly and to encourage young people to spend time with their grandparents and tap into the wisdom and heritage their older family members have to provide.
