BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Last winter, we told you about the program offered by the Burleigh County Senior Center that introduced senior citizens to elementary students. Thursday, those seniors are meeting some of their new friends face-to-face.
Students from The Innovation School visited the Senior Center to meet their pen pals. Rod Barth says it’s good to finally meet the person he’s spent months getting to know.
“You always kinda... okay... You kinda put a mental vision of, ‘okay what does this little person look like?’ I’m sure he was kind of wondering what I looked like.” said Barth.
The pen pals spent their afternoon together painting fishing lures.
