The Casita - posted by Linda

Every Monday a group of up to 17 elderly women come to the Casita for a hot lunch and some social time together.  These women are all widows, and live on their own with very little. They have experienced a lot of grief, losing husbands and children.  Their lovely smiles show their appreciation of this time together and they always begin their meal with a prayer.   Yesterday Brenda played  some traditional music off her computer  and we danced with these women, who giggled with delight. 

The preschool program runs 3 mornings a week and currently there are 14 four year olds attending. They are served a nutritious snack and enjoy playing games and making friends, like children do everywhere.  

The Casita is such an inviting space for all ages to come and enjoy !
