Children And Seniors Enjoy Maple Tapping Demonstration At Heath Village

Friendship Center children and Heath Village residents recently participated in a maple tapping demonstration presented by Kevin Newport, Heath Village director of Grounds.


Children were able to see how a tree is tapped for maple sugar and hear more about the process of how maple syrup is produced. This is a great example of the rich intergenerational programs that are offered at Heath Village coordinated by The Friendship Center. These experiences include pen pal relationships, craft projects, holiday parties and story hours.
