Students visit Adult Day Care Present Center

JAMESTOWN – Students from the Maple Grove High School junior class visited the Chautauqua Adult Day Care Present Center over the holidays. The students made chocolate-covered pretzels with the participants.

They worked with each other and melted the chocolate, prepared the toppings and reminisced with the elderly about their favorite Christmases. Others helped make decorative homemade cookie jars that were given away as Christmas gifts. After lunch, the clients were treated to Christmas carols sung by the students and joined in with some of the lyrics, which was fun for all.
