The Roosevelt IslandI Girl Scouts and Roosevelt Island Disabled Association (RIDA) held their second inter-generational social evening last Friday.

Judy Berdy led a jewelry-making session with several Girl Scouts and senors that are RIDA members.

 It was a lovely evening of chatting and socializing to create relationships between the generations.

The jewelry-making event was the second event. Our first one was held on March 29. Troop 3244 (high school girls - Brianna, Charlotte and Olivia along with co-leader Jasmine Castillo) planned and let an evening of watercolor painting and socializing.

RIDA President Wendy Hersh added:
We have been trying to incorporate a lot more inter-generational activities into RIDA programming.

 We find it a good match  and our members love working with

the teens and kids.
