Last Monday, Bridges Together’s founder and executive director Andrea J. Fonte Weaver had the privilege of presenting at the Weymouth Rotary Club. When member DJ Shah found Bridges Together online after searching for intergenerational programs, he and Andrea tried for months to find a time for the Weymouth Rotary Club to hear about BT and the work we do. Well, the stars finally aligned and Weymouth Rotary and BT were able to connect! From the moment we saw the organization’s slogan – “Be a Gift to the World” – we had a good feeling about this meeting, remembering a poem we often hand out at trainings and programs: You are a Gift to this World.
Thank you to DJ Shah and the Weymouth Rotary Club for hosting us. We are looking forward to future collaborations bringing older adults and children together!
