Cornell Cares Day

January 7, 2012

"Cornell Day" at Brighton Gardens, a senior living community in Middletown.

Cornell volunteers spent an afternoon with residents of Brighton Gardens, leading them in origami, crossword puzzles and a roundtable. We answered their questions about Cornell and even sang the alma mater to the assembled residents.
