My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is Debbie Klann!

Debbie Klann (debbieklann #770) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning a Beginner Level Greatest Generation Merit Badge!

“I have always loved spending time visiting with my older relatives and hearing their stories. I especially love hearing the wisdom they have gained with their age.

Our church has a small mission church on the local reservation that we attend. There is a small group that stays afterwards for coffee and visiting. A couple of years ago, we started going to coffee and hanging out with our older members.

Sunday morning Mass and coffee has become one of the highlights of our week! These older couples have lived here most of their lives, and we went to school with their kids. It is so great to have this church family and sit and hang out with them and enjoy being with them and especially their HUMOR!”

  1. Barbara Criss says:

    I too always enjoyed the company of older people. I have been friends with and helped out eight elderly people over the years. I learned a lot from them. Now that I am getting old I think I will be able to age gracefully while still staying young at heart because of what I learned from them. We don’t value our elderly people enough.

  2. Lisa Von Saunder says:

    We don’t appreciate the older people in our society. One of my best friends and my helper on my farmette is 81 and still going strong. And his sense of humor makes working with him so wonderful. Another best friend is 81 and a ball of fire.
