CEA just concluded an exeptional Intergenerational Road Scholar week in Florida. Lead by Coordinator Tom Murray, some of the Road Scholar participants had the following comments:
--"My grandson is a very active fellow so this program was great for him. We had a lot of fun. Since we do not live very close to each other, the intergenerational programs are special times for us to enjoy each others company as we learn new things."
--"Whenever we do an intergenerational program I certainly want my grandchildren to enjoy themselves; however, I also want them to have new experiences and to come away from the program with new knowledge. I feel that this program provided all of these things."
--"This was one of my favorite intergenerational programs that I have participated in. All of our group leaders showed a love for this area of our country which made it fun for our group to learn. I feel all the instructors provided an outstanding and meaningful learning experience."
--"Tom Murray is an absolutely fabulous Program Director. He exhibitied a singular ability to entertain us as he shared his vast knowledge of the local history and he managed to keep the children in the group both under control and deeply involved throughout the week, without ever sounding like the "bad guy. Both my grandson and I enjoyed this trip a great deal and I will most certainly recommend this program to others."
