Want to get more in touch with the younger generation? Be a pen pal for a Pine Grove student fifth-grader. Every year, each student in John Collyer’s class seeks a senior citizen pen pal. Some from the Council on Aging have already signed up, but this year’s class is larger, with 24 students, and a pen pal is sought for each student. Seniors correspond with the fifth-graders through letters and meet in the spring for a get-together. Contact COA director Brienne Walsh at 978-948-7637 to sign up to be a pen pal.
