Students share stories with seniors

Gardens at Westlake resident Inge Meltser enjoys her time with a student from Avon Heritage South Elementary School.

For the fourth straight year the Gardens at Westlake senior living community hosted students from Avon Heritage South Elementary school for a Right to Read Week project. The students came on May 20 to read their stories to the residents.

The students brought their favorite books to read and some students brought books they wrote and illustrated. The 25 third-grade students had a great time, as did the residents of the Gardens at Westlake who enjoyed listening to the stories being read.

After all the reading was done, it was time for refreshments and cookies to end the visit. The residents all stated, after the children had left, how they cannot wait for the children to return again!
