08/08/12 The Boys and Girls Club of Plymouth have often visited the residents at Miller’s Senior Living Community over the past few years. The club is generous with their time and talents. The choir has come to sing for the residents. They have passed out Christmas gifts, tote bags, and house slippers. And they have played pool and card games with the residents. The residents enjoy spending time with the children and appreciate their generosity.
Last week, however it was Miller’s turn to give back to the Boys & Girls Club. During the summer months the children at the club are involved in the summer lunch program at the Plymouth High School. But, each year the week before school starts the high school must take time to clean and prepare the kitchen for the upcoming school year. So, the boys and girls at the club must pack their lunches.
Tracie Sroka, Miller’s Resident Service Director suggested that Miller’s could return the kindness by supplying a meal for the children. Sroka and residents planned a cookout for the kids. Residents and staff took the facility grill and all the fixings to the club on Tuesday. Sroka and Anna Corbett grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. The facility also donated chips, watermelon and soda pop for the boys and girls and their staff. Residents enjoyed sharing lunch time with the 88 children at the club. The children were very appreciative and each one said “thank you” several times as they boarded their bus to go swimming at the local pool.
