The Terrace at Chestnut Hill, a Juniper Senior Living Community, hosted a Grandparents’ Day Social with Love Begins.
National Grandparents’ Day falls each year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. It’s not a holiday invented to sell cards and flowers. It was initiated at the grassroots level by West Virginian Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade, with the behind-the-scenes support of her husband Joseph L. McQuade. Mrs. McQuade wanted Grandparents Day to be a family day. She envisioned families enjoying small, private gatherings, perhaps even a family reunion, or participating in community events. The Terrace at Chestnut Hills provided just such an opportunity with help from sponsor Love Begins Home Care. Here we share a photos of some of the fun we had as we honored Grandparents’ Day!
