Weymouth has its own Elder services as well as the Whipple center, thats puts together many senior oriented functions. They try to use these functions with child volunteers, which I think is amazing!

We have weymouth Elder housing and they have caregivers coming in and out all the time, the kids at the local schools sing and perform for the elderly during the holidays, at Weymouth High School the students have to volunteer 40 hours before they can graduate, I think it's wonderful how the kids interact with the elderly here, the high school even has a bakery and they bake and deliver to the seniors.
