Fourth-graders in the Cares Club at Mills Pond Elementary School spent the afternoon of May 9 planting flowers and connecting with local senior citizens and residents of the St. James Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center, located across the street from their school.

As part of a 17-year club tradition, the students walked to the facility to participate in an afternoon of gardening alongside the seniors. With their garden tools and gloves in hand, the students spent time beautifying the outdoor patio during their visit while working alongside the seniors.
