Local students and members of DRPS are working to help prepare a special "Sweetheart Dinner" for seniors tonight in Ajax.
Our members will join students from J. Clarke Richardson High School in Ajax for an evening of intergenerational socializing as they help prepare and serve dinner to the group.
The event, held in the high school cafeteria, is one of many Intergenerational Dinners being held across the region. The events have been running for the past 17 years, with DRPS officers joining in on the festivities at a holiday dinner last year.
The Intergenerational Dinner is aimed at encouraging positive relationships between seniors and local youth. The students organize the event from start to finish and take care of marketing, coordinating, cooking and serving the dinner. DRPS members will assist with serving and cleaning up.
Many seniors return year after year for the great food and entertainment. It also gives them a chance to meet with and get to know young people and members of DRPS in their communities.
