At YingHua International School in Kingston Friday, students joined residents of six different Brandywine Living facilities to form a human peace symbol marking the United Nations’ International Day of Peace.
The effort was the brainchild of Brandywine’s Stephanie Gaber, whose job title is escapades producer.
“We’ve done an Arbor Day program with this school before and it turned out really well and this program just strengthened our relationship even better,” Gaber said.
The residents were bused in from six different Brandywine locations, including facilities in Ocean, Monmouth and Somerset counties.
After the peace symbol, the students and residents renewed their friendships, exchanging greetings and hugs and posed for pictures. Some of the students presented their older friends with artwork.
Franklin Park Fire District 2 supplied a ladder truck for an aerial view and the Kingston Fire Department closed the road for everyone’s safety during the event.
