Last Call for National Grandparent's Day Writing Contest - Deadline Sept 7th at Midnight

As you know, we celebrate seniors and we take every opportunity to encourage our followers and listeners to do the same.  So in honor of National Grandparents Day we are sponsoring a "Why I Love My Grandparents" writing contest.  Take a moment to write a paragraph about what makes one of your grandparents so special or memorable and post it on the blog or facebook.  The deadline for submission is September 7th at midnight and the winner will be announced on Grandparents Day - Sept 8th.  The 1st place winner will win a $75 Visa gift card and an invitation to be a guest on Senior Agenda.  2nd place will win a $50 Visa gift card and 3rd place will win a $25 Visa gift card

Entries will be judged based on content and sincerity. We have been having issues with the comments section of the blog but if you can post your paragraph below in the comments section that will be appreciated. You can also post your paragraph as a comment on facebook and we will see to it that all entries get consideration. You can also share the post on your own facebook.  Ask your children to participate and post on their behalves if they are too young for social media. Everyone is welcome to participate regardless of age. Let's work together and celebrate our grandparents.  

Grandparents play a unique role in the lives of their grandchildren. They generally represent stability in the face of hardship or change. They are instrumental in handing down habits of the heart and faith. They work as watchdogs and advocates.  They warm our hearts and spoil our souls.
