During our annual Northwest Georgia fair this month, senior citizens were allowed to get into the fairgrounds for free on Wednesday, September 14th. At the fair, they were allowed to check out all of the attractions, as well as play bingo. Business leaders from Sonoraville High School presented the winners their prizes at the bingo games. Members of Sonoraville High School FBLA also assisted senior citizens by carrying trays to tables and getting sweet tea refills, provided by Calhoun’s Chick-fil-A.
When questioned about the community service the students had participated in, Sean Seabrook said that his experience gave him a sense of hope for today’s world. Though there are terrible tragedies people face daily, he learned that any little thing can make someone’s day a little better.
Student Taylor Harrison stated, “Too often, young people don’t think about the older generations in their community. This was an amazing opportunity to connect with senior citizens and see how thankful they are for the big and even the small acts of kindness.”
