Doing Something Grand!

It was a day of intergenerational fun on Saturday, September 12, when St. George Village celebrated National Grandparents Day with residents, their families and staff!

SGV’s own “Knitting Master” Dot Heuslein hosted a table of her hand-made items for sale, and donated the proceeds to the Alzheimer’s Association.

A Grand Day was had by all!
