‘Tis the season to celebrate holiday greetings with the residents of the Greenleaf Gardens senior apartments. The spirit of Christmas was in full swing as the residents, who were dressed in their most stylish and festive holiday colors, gathered to celebrate the holiday season. The room and tables were beautifully decorated for the occasion. The American Veterans (AMVETS) Department of DC has sponsored this event for the senior and disabled residents of the Greenleaf Gardens senior residence for the past five years. On hand to celebrate with residents and to represent the AMVETS organization was its executive director, Mr. Johnnie Collins, Jr., and judge advocate, Mr. Tony Raines. Ms. Belinda Belk, president of the Greenleaf Gardens senior apartments’ resident council, served as the hostess of good cheer for residents and guests. A delicious dinner was served, while jolly Christmas tunes were played in the background. A wonderful time was shared by all, as you can see in the wonderful photos that residents were so happy to pose for and allow me to share. They asked me to wish all of The Southwester’s readers a blessed holiday and a happy New Year!
