Fifth Graders Deliver Homemade Cookies

by Lina Arena-DeRosa

Holliston's Miller School Fifth Graders celebrated their fifth year of delivering homemade cookies, crafts and gift bags to seniors in the Holliston Community on Tuesday December 11, 2012

Underwritten by Holliston Newcomers and directed by Fifth Grade Teacher, Kerry Perpall, these fun- filled gift bags are filled with goodies and then hand delivered around town to over 100 seniors, many living in Cole Court and Mission Springs.

"This annual intergenerational program allows Miller School students to visit and deliver holiday cheer to individual seniors in Holliston.  It is a great way to bring together two very different generations during the holiday season," stated Senior Center Director Lina Arena-DeRosa.
