April 10, 2013This issue of Penn State’s Ideas for Intergenerational Living newsletter covers a wide range of intergenerational programs, studies, events, and online resources and reports. Highlights include: high school students and senior volunteers discussing the Holocaust, second graders visiting residents of an assisted living facility during the holidays, a new study on “sustainable aging in place,” the birth of a new university-based intergenerational center (hint: It’s in Hawaii), and efforts to map intergenerational programs and practices across Europe and celebrate the “European Year of Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity.”
April 10, 2013On March 12, 2013, at the State College Area High School in Central Pennsylvania, all of the ingredients were in place for a memorable intergenerational dialogue about war, conflict, reconciliation and peace. The impetus for the meeting was Hitler’s Daughter. This is the title of a novel written by Jackie French and a play adapted from the novel and performed by the Monkey Baa Theatre Company (from Australia) at Penn State University's Eisenhower Auditorium.

Our Day Care Learning Center and After School Program participate by entertaining and enjoying visits from Santa with the residents.
