“A Salute to Yesterday’s Children” was born out of a desire to celebrate senior citizens, many of whom sacrificed their own desires and ambitions so that their children can become the high achievers of today’” said Mauby Media Services director Glenda Cadogan.
The event featured an African drum procession, the presentation of gifts, special performances including storytelling and drumming. Cadogan said each honoree will also have celestial star named for them through a registry service.
