Happy Birthday, MLK...and a trip to Ten Broeck Commons!

I went to Ten Broeck Commons with my homeschool Roots and Shoots group. Ten Broeck is a retirement home for older people and my friend Zoe's great grandma lives there. We gave out cookies and cupcakes and made the residents smile and laugh! We also celebrated Martin Luther King's birthday and I made a poster about Sojourner Truth. I showed the poster and told the residents all about this amazing woman who came from New Paltz and who escaped slavery and told other people how wrong slavery was!

Here is our Roots and Shoots website and Zoe's report on our trip to Ten Broeck!
