Leo Club Jyväskylä/Lohikoski has arranged activity to Jyväskyläs elderly people sheltered home. Young club members had fun with elderlies during whole time and everybody enjoyed staying. Actually so much that LEOs already promised to start cooperating in the future.
LEOs helped elderlies at planting violet seeds to little pots which were given to all participants to take their own home or leave to the people sheltered. Violets grow fast and they are easy to take care. Reward of little care comes with lovely blossoms which are joy for eyes.
After planting violets, LEOs arranged bingo game with small prices. Everyone had much fun and nobody wanted to stop playing bingo, even coffee was ready. At this point I want you to know that elderly people at Finland love coffee and coffee table talks above anything. After many rounds of bingo we enjoyed coffee and thanked the people and opportunity arranges activity. Experience did unite older and younger participants and many realize that we are quite the same and age is just the number when it comes for having fun.
