Part 5: Stop and Smell the Flowers Outing with Pearl’s Hill Care Home Senior Folks

The buses returned to Botanic Gardens to pick us all up – time to go back to the nursing home for their lunch as most our residents are on special diet.  We hope everybody had a great time!  Thank you very much, Botanic Gardens for this wonderful outing – we will visit you again soon!

Part 2: Stop and Smell the Flowers Outing with Pearl’s Hill Care Home Senior Folks

The buses we leased could only take in so much seated volunteers so most of them headed straight to Botanic Gardens.

It started to pour for a good five minutes then we had our sunshine!  Thank God!

A friend who has earlier joined our previous charity event in May 2017 happens to be a gym instructor and she asked me if she could lead the morning exercise for our dear senior residents.  The day of our outing, she showed up with a few more friends who helped out with wheeling and attending to our folks!  Thank you so very much!

We lined up by the Palm Valley for our morning exercise.  JJ took the lead.
