“The Bayberry of Greenwood residents enjoyed some High School students from Greenwood Christian School on Friday, April 13th. This was part of a missions day  that they go out in to the community and volunteer their time and talents.

Students enjoyed the day by asking the residents questions from their younger years and getting to know them, playing in teams of corn hole while they cheered each other on, enjoyed a pizza lunch with the residents and ended the day with a fun game of bingo! We want to thank the school and students for thinking of us for their mission day, it was a mission well served.”
