Wednesday, May 20, was a very special day at Joyce’s Toluca Lake Preschool and Kindergarten. We had the privilege of hosting seniors from AvantGarde Senior Citizens Center.

Four women from the Center came and read to our students, ages 2 through 6. From “Splash” to “Rain” to “Finklehopper Frog,” the children listened intently while our new friends were able to see the students’ eyes glimmer and smiles radiate.

We are looking forward to their next visit in June.
