Linking Generations – One Smile at a Time

“The smiles that light up our seniors faces and the laughter that follows while spending time enjoying activities with their “linked” youth.”

Update from LINKING GENERATIONS

Linking Generations extends a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our funders, community supporters, senior care facilities and schools for your continued support during these times.

As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, we have taken stringent precautionary measures to assist in the prevention of the transmission of the virus and to comply with recommendations from government officials and public health experts.

Our programs may be halted until we reassess the situation, however we still are reaching out to our seniors and youth to help with isolation and to help in any way we can. To brighten the days, we will continue to post pictures from this years programs, so that everyone can benefit from a smile !

Linking Generations – The seniors from Country Cottage Retirement Residence and students from Archbishop Jordan Catholic High School Painted Bird Houses

Home made bird houses can provide wild birds with a safe place to build nests and raise their young, and building bird houses can be an enjoyable craft.

Our seniors from Country Cottage Retirement Residence and our students from Archbishop Jordan Catholic High School had a great afternoon as they prepared for the spring birds to arrive and have new houses to fly into.

Linking Generations Sports Day and Ice Cream Social

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!
Seniors and students enjoyed a Sports Day and impressed each other with their sport related knowledge. Some even wore their favorite team jersey/colors and hats while other shared special sport memorabilia with each other. Then, just like attending a game – everyone enjoyed ice cream sundaes!!

2019-2020 Linking Generations Annual Family Meet and Greet event – Silver Birch Haven and New Horizons Charter School

Our Linking Generations Students and Seniors are extremely excited about this evening visit, as it gives the both participants an opportunity to introduce their ‘linked’ student or senior to their family.
This visit also allows all of us at Linking Generations to recognize how much each senior and student is an integral part of Linking Generation’s success.
Each participating student and senior can invite one parent or family member over the age of 18 years to attend this visit with them and meet their ‘linked’ partners.
The Family Meet and Greet is similar to a regular Linking Generations visit, as we all do a structured activity together plus, we have some fun!
