As a new stay at home mom, I want to give my kids and myself opportunities to socialize and make new friends, as well as learn about making others feel good. But, I was a little apprehensive about joining a new group where I'd likely not know anyone.
I took a leap and decided to go to the TOAM gathering to make vases, flowers and placemats to bring to the Clinton Rose Senior Center. I was blown away by how friendly and welcoming everyone at the gathering was! I was even more blown away when we presented our gifts to the seniors at the center and sang songs to them before their lunch. Many of the seniors joined in with the singing and had a great time chatting with the kids and the moms after our performance.
Lunch with the kids and moms after our volunteer mission provided a wonderful opportunity to get to know everyone a little better. It was such a rewarding and fun experience. I can't wait for our next event!
