A special inter-generational event took place on Saturday, May 21st at Kennedy’s Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Unit when Cherry Hill Brownie Troop 30064 (made up of 2nd-graders from Horace Mann Elementary School) visited. The youngsters read short stories that they’d composed as part of their badge requirements for the Storytelling Journey badge. The troop “adopted” the ACE Unit, located at Kennedy University Hospital in Stratford, in the 2015, and the girls received their badges at the conclusion of the visit.
