We create a social activity space for the local elderly. We gather together at 9:30 AM every third Wednesdays and at 10:00 AM every fourth Wednesdays of each month. Then, cook together and have English classes on the first and third Wednesdays.
We see the same faces all the time since we live in a small area, so it would be really nice if people could visit us!
