In a prepared statement on the event, Meredith Holmquist, one of the event organizers said:

“Everyone was smiling and laughing. The seniors were telling stories about their grandchildren and what they did for a living, and the teens were telling them about their plans for the future… Intergenerational relationships are important and to see it happening was so uplifting.”
