Special to The Chronicle

A group of Sunday preschoolers from First Waughtown Baptist Church (FWBC), 838 Moravia St., Winston-Salem, surprised a church member at Silas Creek Rehabilitation Center with a Grandparents Day concert and gift Saturday, Sept. 12. Grandparents Day was Sunday, Sept. 13.

Members of the A-Team Class, taught by Senora Boulware and her granddaughter Jonae Hanna, serenaded Cattie Finklea and several other residents in the center’s dining hall before presenting each of their elders with hand-decorated frames with a group photo.

The pre-school to second-grade students were joined by several chaperons, who helped with the presentations.

After the visit to Silas Creek, the class was rewarded and honored at Tom’s Bread Box and Ice Cream Parlor on Kernersville Road. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Lambert, members of FWBC and owners of the store, hosted the gathering.

Cones, cups and sundaes were the order of the day as each child received a certificate and gift bag for completing the Critter’s Corner Summer Reading Program.

The program is named in honor of Kristina “Critter” Brown, a former class member who died after being hit by a car in 1994. The class also honors Kristina’s memory with annual contributions to Brenner Children’s Hospital and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Pastor Dennis W. Bishop is senior pastor of First Waughtown Baptist Church.
