The West Cobb Extreme 12U ’07 team spent a Saturday afternoon at the Sterling Estates of West Cobb Senior Living Community sharing some holiday spirit with the residents. The team brought gifts and handmade holiday cards to over 25 residents of the facility. Both the residents and the team engaged in conversations about best Christmas memories, most delicious holiday meals, and (of course) softball! Everyone enjoyed cookies and lemonade and the event culminated with the Extreme team singing Christmas carols to the group!
Everyone had a fun and festive time and not only were the residents pleased with the event (they requested an encore visit!) but a staff member of the facility that was not involved in the activity said her heart was so filled with joy listening to all the seniors laughing . . . and that it was so loud it prompted her to get up and peek in the room! She just saw smile after smile after smile, both young and old.
We will have a few more fans in the stands at Lost Mountain Park this coming season!
