Kids play seniors in seated volleyball game

Our Community Service Club went to St. Johnland Nursing Home in Kings Park to play seated volleyball with the seniors and we had a ball (get it?).

We helped the seniors prepare for the Gold Games Tournament, where they compete against other nursing homes. There were four rows of seniors compared with two rows of us students.

We were supposed to play with a balloon, but in the middle of the game, the balloon burst and scared us more than the seniors. Then, we resumed playing, but this time with a beach ball.

The seniors were giving us a good run for our money, but in the end, we won. It was so much fun to help the seniors prepare for their tournament, and we wish them luck.
