Green Pond and Walterboro Senior Center Holiday Outing

On Friday December 7th Green Pond and Walterboro Seniors Center traveled to Ryan’s restaurant located Summerville SC for their annual holiday meal outing. “It’s always a joy to serve the senior here at Ryan’s for their holiday outing and meal” said Mosetta Pringle, Ryan’s Hospitality Manager. “They came last year, and we were so happy to host them again this year”, said Pringle. The group included a total of 57 seniors, 26 from Walterboro center and 31 from Green Pond center. Each year the seniors go on a holiday outing where they have a sit-down meal and fellowship with each other. When asked by the site managers where they want to go this year the seniors all voted to return to Ryan’s Restaurant as they did last year. Everlena Brown, Colleton County Council on Aging Director along with Isabelle Jones, Green Pond Center Site Manager and Lillian Thomas, Walterboro Center Site Manager worked together to coordinate the outing for all the seniors to enjoy the outing.
Patricia “Pat” Waters, Transportation Supervisor coordinated safe travels for the seniors from both centers to arrive and return safely with the help of drives, Lawrence Ulmer and Jessica Lawton. Nutrition Aids Martha Graham and Gloria Wade along with Ryan’s servers Tammy Dean and April Mills helped to make sure all the seniors were served and well taken care of while enjoying their meal. Carolyn Inabinate, Thomas’s mother took time off from her schedule to join the group and volunteer wherever she needed to lend a helping hand. “I was such a wonderful outing, we had a great time fellowshipping together with both centers”, said Barbara Covick. During the meal Waters cheerfully handed out greeting card to seniors from Lucille Wright. “I just wanted to share a little holiday cheer with a simple greeting card” said Wright.
