Please come to an afternoon tea where you will be entertained and
served by teenagers in our community who would love to enjoy your
company and get to know you.

After the passing of my grandfather Robert Solaga, a World War II Veteran, I felt a huge void in my life and wanted to somehow create something in his honour. I saw my grandfather every day. I know these visits by me, my sister and our friends had a huge impact on my grandfather. My grandmother says our visits always lifted his spirits even when he was not feeling all that great. I want to also have this positive impact on other veterans and the elderly in our local area. Many older people do not have young people in their lives and equally many teenagers do not have the incredible benefit of having the experience, knowledge and wisdom of older people in their lives. I want to bring these two groups together. My plan is to have monthly get-togethers with teenagers and the more mature in our community to enjoy various activities.
