I always have lots of ideas of ways to give back to the community. Unfortunately, due to my busy schedule, I often feel like I don’t have enough time to really make a difference. Today, I got to live out a dream. I had the idea to provide a meal and party to the residents of the Grange, an elderly home in Portsmouth. After a lot of planning, we had the event today. I’m so grateful to everyone who volunteered to make food and/or serve. You all made it possible! Everyone had so much fun. Micah, thank you so much for your help! We made little turkey decorations for each of the residents. I found lots of old calypso music, which the residents absolutely loved. The food was amazing. I had many students come up to me and thank me for having the event. That, combined with the thanks from the residents and staff, and all the smiles, is what really made it all worthwhile. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Thanksgiving when so far away from family. Today was one of those days that makes happiness tangible.
