We have provided them with manicures, pedicures, and hair treatments, not just as a luxurious indulgence, but as a heartfelt gesture of gratitude for their tireless efforts and sacrifices during their heydays. They have worked hard, raised families, and contributed to the growth and development of our community, laying the foundation for the vibrant society we enjoy today “she said

This she said provided her an opportunity to learn from our elders as they shared their stories, experiences, and wisdom, while also fostering a deeper connection between generations and local leadership. “It’s a chance for us to listen, learn, and honor their invaluable contributions to our community” she said.
