Hotchkiss Students help ring in the Season

Noble Residents get a hand in assembling scarecrow

On Wednesday October 2, students from The Hotchkiss School in Lakeville CT made the short drive to Noble Horizons’ community room in order to volunteer their time helping residents craft a handmade bingo board as well as its owner, a scarecrow built by both residents and students. For the past several years both students and residents have enjoyed coming together for this now annual tradition of team building and community interaction. For an afternoon, students who have volunteered their time made sure to focus their efforts on making not only the scarecrow as unique as possible, with a combination of plastic, paper, and pantyhose, but that the residents taking part felt the joy of creating and accomplishing a goal together. In previous years, Noble Horizons and students of The Hotchkiss School have played host to trivia afternoons, where teams are comprised of both students and residents, such spirit becomes evident when games like these become uniquely competitive between these friendly teams. Above all else, residents at Noble Horizons enjoy the uniqueness of interaction with the younger generations, especially given that Hotchkiss students come from such a variety of places both at home and abroad. Hotchkiss students have also generously shared their own distinctly wonderful artwork with Noble residents in the past, specifically displaying their artwork at Noble Horizons and encouraging residents to pick which pieces they wanted for their own. Noble Horizons hasn’t been the only place that has played host to the communal interactions between residents and Hotchkiss students, Noble’s residents have been graciously invited over to Hotchkiss for art shows as well, including a coffee-hour esque meet and greet between Noble residents and young Hotchkiss artists. Creation is the heart of interaction, and at Noble Horizons, when the calendar turns to October, both residents and Hotchkiss students look forward to coming together, creating, enjoying the season and most of all, each other.
