2019 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
In an effort to further promote community bonding and to encourage multi-generational connections, this project will purchase several outdoor yard games such as cornhole, bocce, chess, jenga, connect four, and others for use in space around a community center.
To encourage community bonding and intergenerational connections, the Marion Gerrish Community Center created a space for people to have fun outdoors while playing games. An area was leveled to make the location accessible and safe. The center created weekly times for older adults to play cornhole (pictured) and bocce. The players hiding behind star masks are engaged in a game of outdoor Farkel. Other lawn games, available every day duing the spring and summer, include Connect Four, "Yardzee" and Giant Jenga.
