Wesley to Celebrate Grandparents Day

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community, will host the inaugural Saratoga Grandparents Day Celebration on Sunday, Sept. 10 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Saratoga Springs.

The event will honor grandparents and great-grandparents by providing an opportunity for family members of all ages to spend time together on National Grandparents Day. Attendees will enjoy carnival-style games and food, miniature golf, arts and crafts, and other activities. 

The event is presented by Crescent Hill Partners, with additional support from Marshall and Sterling Insurance, AJ Signs, Ellms Family Farm, Digital First Media and Holiday Inn.

Admission is $10 per person. Grandparents and great-grandparents are free, courtesy of Crescent Hill Partners. The first 250 grandparents to register will receive a special giveaway upon arrival.

Advance registration is encouraged and can be made online at www.saratogagrandparentsday.com or by phone at 518-691-1420. The Holiday Inn is located at 232 Broadway in Saratoga Springs.

Proceeds from the event will support the renovation of the Resident Activities Room at The Wesley Health Care Center. The residence caters to older adults who may have significant, chronic medical needs requiring daily assistance. The Resident Activities Room serves as a social hub for these residents, providing a venue for performances, religious services and other social gatherings.
