“In this day of age, people are all over the country. I know my kids grew up in another state from their grandparents and having the opportunity to be around elderly is so rewarding for the children, it’s something they need in their lives, and it brings such smiles to the elderly as well,” said Primrose School of Bear Creek assistant director Lynn Peterson.
