Co-op students help with flowers at senior center

Culpeper County High School’s co-op program helped plant flower at the Culpeper Senior Center May 9.

Elvin Lozano, Teresa Compton, Terrence O’Bannion and Robert Heilig worked alongside teacher Gwendolyn Grayson to help plant flowers that the seniors will enjoy all summer long.

The group volunteers throughout the community helping with Mana Ministry and working for Horizon Food Store and Goodnight Jewelers just to name a few.

“It’s really fun and you get to get your hands dirty,” O’Bannion said of planting the flowers.

Culpeper Senior Center director Gladys Williams has a special place in her heart for the special needs classes at Culpeper County Public Schools as she once taught those classes.

“It’s just like old times for me,” she said. “The seniors really appreciate the work they do and they appreciate the flowers. This is just about bringing our community together.
