Senior Service Club
President: Sophia Charles ‘20
The elderly represent a group whose worth in our society is often forgotten. Their very presence is inherently one of experience — and for this reason, often one of wisdom as well. Ideally, we will meet monthly to organize a (monthly) service trip to a location that has identified a need for support to their senior populations. These populations may include nursing homes, retirement communities, in-home residents, and the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

All of us have had experiences in nature that have brought us closer to ourselves, whether 18 days in the woods, hiking around Mont Blanc, or fishing in our favorite locations. We understand that we can all get busy during the year but we hope through this club to encourage everyone to get outdoors and reflect. In this club each member will have a journal in which they can reflect about their experiences with nature with photos, writing, and drawings.
