Cashman students make placemats for house-bound seniors

AMESBURY — The Amesbury Council on Aging along with Amesbury Elementary School and Cashman Elementary School have partnered together. The new program will bring handmade placemats from the students to the home-bound seniors in our community.

The Amesbury COA is a meal site for the Merrimack Valley Nutrition Plan that is funded in part through Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley. Each person who receives the Meals on Wheels will be the recipient of a handmade placemat two times a month. Themes will surround the holidays, lesson plans and the academics the children are working on in the classroom.

The seniors will receive these placemats to use or display as they choose. The Amesbury Public Schools are supportive of the Council on Aging and are pleased to be partnering with the Council on Aging to bring this program.
