St. James Senior Center Director Nancy Montgomery said she was ecstatic when  St. James Tiger Cubs Preschool teacher Lori Davis came to her with an idea where students would create placemats for the senior center’s dining tables.  

Montgomery said the first grouping arrived in the fall to denote Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, while the recent creations by the students are Valentine’s Day themed.

“The gist of students adopting this project is heartwarming for our senior patrons. Comments flow as to how imaginative and adorable the placemats are and how they add a bit of color to the tables, is refreshing.” The senior center dining bunch sends a heartfelt “thank you” to the students for being kind and thoughtful.
