When the two volunteers of the newly formed cooking club arrived at Park Crescent Nursing Home a group of residents were assembled at the table eagerly awaiting to  participate in another culinary adventure. Two volunteers helped over 15 nursing home residents create their own banana pudding! This was done in the midst of laughter and recipe sharing and excitement.

One of the volunteers shared that one of the residents reached out and pulled her hand to her cheek and smiled. Another who had only one hand was helped to experience the uniqueness of the event.  It was a time of fun and joy. Hopefully more volunteers will participate as we aim to keep the cooking club alive.
