TIAA team volunteers at Dallas Arboretum – April 14, 2023

Apr 18, 2023

Seven TIAA members along with our two Senior Source hosts arrived at the Dallas Arboretum on April 14, 2023, to volunteer in the Children’s Discovery Garden.  We were met by the Arboretum volunteer team and immediately put to work at strategic locations throughout the garden.  Very soon 27 school buses from local schools arrived to unload about 1,000 children eager to learn about all kinds of garden facts from the Arboretum instructors and guides.  We enjoyed directing the children from one location to another, answering questions from the children, and just enjoying the children’s enthusiasm.

After the morning’s volunteer tasks were completed we made a quick tour of the Dallas Blooms displays throughout the gardens and headed for the Arboretum café and the gift store.  The weather could not have been more perfect, the tasks more enjoyable, and the fellowship between our volunteers more rewarding.  We will certainly volunteer at the Dallas Arboretum again next year.
