Several years ago, when I was working with a nationally known real estate company, we were challenged to go out into the community every Spring and donate our time to those who needed it. My good friend Deanna and I decided that we would like to spend time with the Senior Community at our local Senior Center.
After we started our own company, one of the cornerstones of our philosophy was to re-invest in the community with our time. Because we had such a good experience with our Senior community, we decided to keep it going. Years ago we found out that simply an ice cream desert was something the folks there looked forward to.
I somehow have been able to bypass the actual work of scooping and assembling the bowls-with ice cream, chocolate syrup, cream topping & sprinkles. I, instead, love to deliver the bowls to the Seniors and relish seeing their smiles when a simply made dish is served to them.
On my first visit years ago, I was introduced to Tommie-an elegant and enthusiastic lady who formerly lived in Albany, GA. We connected over our Southern roots, and I look just as forward to seeing her each year as she sees us. It is a highlight of my day to spend time with this remarkable lady.
The director, Robin, has been so gracious and accommodating to us while we are there. I wish we could spend a few days each week there and capture that feeling of helping someone else out that is so rewarding.
