On Saturday, April 13, Quinn Elliott – presently 6 years old – held her 7th Birthday Party at Osgoode Care Centre, where she and her friends joined the residents for high tea. The kids dressed in fancy outfits and decorated cookies and made crafts with the residents.
What started as a Saturday afternoon visit with the Metcalfe Community Association‘s Kindness Club, has turned into an extraordinary example of today’s youth caring for the elderly. Shortly after Quinn visited the Osgoode Care Centre in February 2018, she asked her mother if she could have her 6th birthday party at the home with the seniors. She wanted to make crafts for them and enjoy a guest magician together. How awesome is that?
Well, this year Quinn asked to do it again! Quinn’s parents, Natalie & Mark Elliott, once again provided the refreshments (tea, juice, cookies, and other snacks befitting a high tea!), the craft supplies, and the entertainment – a surprise musical guest.
