|The Springfield Foster Grandparent Program enjoyed traveling to Hannibal, MO this week for their group bus trip. The ladies were treated to a lovely lunch aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat accompanied by music and a question and answer session with the Captain and his wife. Even though their sight-seeing tour was cancelled on account of wind, the group improvised and decided to travel to Sawyer’s Creek to enjoy the Christmas, candy and popcorn shops. The group of 36 volunteers ended the night with dinner at Cracker Barrel and then boarded the bus back home.
One Hope United is so appreciative of the hard work that our foster grandparents do every day, and this was a wonderful chance to show them our appreciation for their committment to serving the emotional and academic needs of hundreds of children every school year.
