Elementary Students Visit Grace Residents for Reptile Show

Posted 5/16/2016

Twenty-one students from Robbins Elementary School recently visited Grace Willowbrook Assisted Living to witness a reptile exhibition.

"I just like doing things with the residents here," student Rayna Welsch said. "It's just really fun learning things, and apparently they know a lot more than we do, so it's fun to see and talk with them."

Willowbrook resident Hope Goessling said the feeling is mutual, although she sat near a hallway so she could "get out quick" if she didn't appreciate the reptiles.

"The kids just have so much energy and they are just so sweet about it all," she said. "They are just a lot of fun to be around and we love having them here."

Amanda Sandford, owner/ educator of Nature Connection of Chippewa Falls, said it was her third year coming to Willowbrook for the activity.
