"It's Better to Be a Has Been than to Be a Never Was," according to the former Distinguished Young Women who visited seniors at Parkway SAIL Center June 24th
"It's better to be a 'Has Been' than to be a 'Never Was'" is the philosophy of the former Distinguished Young Women who shared a morning of fun and activity with the senior citizens at Parkway SAIL Center on Wednesday, June 24th.
They sang and danced and played music for the seniors. They joined their elders in a game of train dominoes, karaoke, table tennis and conversation. The dozen or so young women came from North, South, East and West--from Alabama and Florida, Minnesota and South Dakota, Wyoming, Kentucky and New Jersey--and all had the same goal, to enjoy an hour and a half with men and women their grandparents' age.
While here in Mobile, the Has Beens have cooked a meal for residents at Ronald McDonald House, visited with those at L'Arche and played and entertained Parkway seniors. Perhaps one of their most valuable "jobs" is to mentor this year's class of America's Distinguished Young Women.
