The Volleyball team recently volunteered their time to paint pumpkins with the residents of the Legacy Retirement Home in nearby Churchville.
This is the fourth year that the program has bought and donated the pumpkins before painting them with the residents.
More than 15 of the residents joined the team and had the chance to have a bit of fun with the younger generation.
“It is great to continue our relationship with Legacy Retirement home,” said coach Kirsten Meyers. ” Many of the residents attended Roberts Wesleyan and love to hear what is happening on campus now. Our team also benefits as we gain perspective on having a outwardly focus in serving others.”
The team plans to return after the season is completed in December to decorate Christmas cookies and again in February to make Valentine’s Day cards.
