Sunshine Care Assisted Living Homes announced its status as “A Generations United Program of Distinction” at the St. Michael’s School Catholic Schools Grandparents Day Celebration. Festivities included grandparents attending school for the day and an awards ceremony honoring 20 student winners of Sunshine Care’s “Third Annual Grandparents Day Creativity Contest.” Sunshine Care’s Executive Director, Michelle Andreasen applauded St. Michael’s School for their four years of participation in The Great Friendship Link noting, “Each week a St. Michael’s class walks over and they work with senior buddies at Sunshine Care. For the residents, the highlight of the visit is simply time spent together.” During the presentation by Sunshine Care, winners of the Contest were also announced. The categories were: drawings, poetry and essays, all relating to their experiences with their own grandparents or with the Sunshine Care grandmas and grandpas.
