In a display of intergenerational excellence, Morning Pointe of East Hamilton residents Ann Hagerman and Bernice Peace recently placed first and second, respectively, in a local art contest produced in partnership by the Valamont Woman’s Club and Rossville Elementary School.

 

Members of the Valamont Woman’s Club delivered adult coloring pages and crayons to Morning Pointe of East Hamilton in April so that residents could participate in an adult art contest.

Judged by kindergarten students at Rossville Elementary, this was a chance for Morning Pointe residents to show off their creativity and partner with two groups they care so much about.

 

On Tuesday, the Valamont Woman’s Club returned to the Morning Pointe campus to announce the winners. Ann and Bernice won first and second place, respectively.

 

“I was so surprised to find out that I won first place in the contest!” said Ann Hagerman. “We all

had a great time with this project.”

 

Intergenerational programming is an important part of Morning Pointe’s life enrichment

initiatives, connecting senior residents with children and students of all ages to promote giving

back to the local community. Morning Pointe is proud to partner with several area local schools

throughout the year to offer activities including a pen pal exchange program, one-on-one visits

and other service-oriented projects around the Southeast.

 

Morning Pointe Senior Living is the developer, owner, and manager of 35 Morning Pointe

assisted living and The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence

communities in five southeastern states. Morning Pointe was founded in 1996 by Tennessee

healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and Franklin Farrow. The GFWC Valamont Woman’s Club

is a sixty year old organization focused on organizing projects for their community.

 

“It is so exciting to start this community partnership with the Valamont Woman’s Club,” said

Morning Pointe of East Hamilton life enrichment director Leigha King. “These projects are very

fulfilling for our residents and they love being able to give back to others. We are actively

working on upcoming events with the Valamont Woman’s Club like a project to donate dog toys

to the Humane Society. We look forward to a long-lasting partnership.”
