Fun Day With the YMCA Adults…

As most of you know… I now work at the YMCA Adult Day Program…

Seniors… Handicapped… Dementia… Mental… Old Age…

I already love all of them… all are different… but, all worthy to have someone treat them with respect and dignity…

I believe we all do this… who work in the program…

It is Derby Week here in Louisville, KY

There are so many events… for all ages… kdf-logo

Admission to all events is the purchase of a $5.00 Derby Pin…

Pins-Banner and if you receive a Gold Pin …you can register it for a big prize!

They have a Pre-Parade Event that displays the Floats and Giant Balloons that will be in the parade… before the actual Pegasus Parade Thursday…

We took eight of our adults to this event yesterday…

we drive them in the YMCA vans that provide transportation daily to those in need…

We chit-chatted on the way…

One of the gentlemen was a little disappointed that we weren’t going downtown to the actual parade…

But, when he was walking around… he liked it very much…

and there was a lot of walking!…

They all received a paper to have stamped at each display…

There were small gifts/hand-outs… at each booth…

We had taken our lunches… but, there were concessions of all sorts if you wanted to purchase food and drinks…

They all seemed to have a great time…but, were really tired when they returned…

Irene went to a recliner and was immediately asleep… and James said, “When I get home… I’m taking off my shoes…getting in my chair and taking a nap!”…

I believe we all felt the same way!…

I was pleasantly surprised to see a few former students and teachers I had worked with before retiring…

It was a fun day for sure!
