Intrepid Preschoolers Tromp through the Snow to the Benz

February 19, 2014 - The youngsters of the Sandwich Children's Center visit for lunch with the Wednesday Senior Meals diners.

Rebecca Sykes writes "Close to a foot of fresh snow greeted Sandwich Children's Center snowshoe-ers and walkers for our 7th annual trek through the woods to the Doris L. Benz Community Center! Four teachers, a parent, a volunteer and nine preschoolers made the trip through the snowy woods. Two of the adults broke trail through the deep snow. The children managed wonderfully, though they sank to their waists if they got off the trail! They had fun with that and also enjoyed pulling snowy branches down along the way to make snow showers. At the Benz, the children sang "You Are My Sunshine" and "Wading Through the Water" to the assembled seniors, accompanied on guitar by long-time SCC volunteer Nan Russell. A hot lunch and some chat with the seniors finished out our visit, and we bundled back up and went back through the woods to SCC."
