About two dozen grandparents, their children and grandchildren, took part Sunday afternoon in a Tea, Fruit and Cookies Grandparents Day Social at the Holy Family Senior Center, sponsored by the Elder Care Community Council of Franklin County, Inc.
The program included a presentation by Karen Kessel, from Bring Me A Book Franklin, who read the books “What Grandmas (and Grandpas) Do Best” and “Read to Your Bunny” to the gathering.
There were plenty of crafts for children to do, cards created by students from Project Impact and the ABC School, and centerpieces from Project Impact.
“We’re forming some good partnerships,” said Bonnie Fulmer, president of the ECCC.
Floral arrangements and gift baskets were given away to the grandparents, as were wooden back scratchers.
The guests enjoyed homemade pimento cheese sandwiches, brownies and cookies, fresh fruit and punch.
