Inter-generational Jingo

LAMP was recently allotted funds from the Salvation Army to participate in inter-generational activities.  On October 18th, LAMP was able to spend some time at Ecumen playing bingo-I mean Jingo! I learned that Jingo is Bingo with a twist.  The group was asked a trivia question about Thanksgiving, and once the correct answer was determined, you could place your piece over the picture on the Jingo card.  Some of the questions were tough (I should have brushed up a bit on my Thanksgiving Day facts!), and some were more simple.  Either way, it was fun to see the residents interact with youth and mentors!  I saw kids helping residents find the picture answer on their card, and I saw residents helping the kids learn the answers (especially with traditional foods).  Thanks to a grant from the Salvation Army, LAMP was able to provide the prizes for our Jingo winners!
