Collingswood Manor will host a Family Fun Day on Grandparents’ Day, September 7th. The event includes an inter-generational walk, food, games, music, crafts, contests, and much more!

I’ll be volunteering for the day and can’t wait to see everything that will be happening.

On September 7th from 11:00am to 3:30pm, residents, residents’ families, associates and the general public will have the opportunity to Do Something Grand for Grandparents’ Day. There will be a commemorative intergenerational “Walk for All Ages,” as well as food, games, music, crafts, contests and so much more! The walk will be led by “Finley” the beloved Camden Riversharks’ mascot.

Residents, their grandchildren and great-grandchildren, are encouraged to attend. Resident, Elaine Lucent, who has participated in past years, is planning to share the festivities with her triplet great-granddaughters. “They’ll enjoy all that’s going on,” reflected Lucent.

Resident Mary Decker stated, “I’ll be volunteering for the day and can’t wait to see everything that will be happening.”

The cost is $25.00 registration for a family of four, $10.00 for individuals and $15.00 for a wristband for games. All proceeds go to the United Methodist Homes’ Fellowship Fund, a financial safety net for seniors. For over 107 years, the Homes has upheld residents who have outlived their financial resources.

The public is invited to register to walk, form a team, become a business partner, share on social media, and donate online at or in person on September 7.

Collingswood Manor is a residential, assisted living and skilled nursing community located at 460 Haddon Ave., Collingswood, NJ. For more information call Kathy Lewis at 856-854-4331, extension 5213.
