Tail-Wagger Treats is an intergenerational activity that involves kids, senior citizens and homeless dogs!  

Children under the supervision of troop leaders, will work with the residents in Assisted Living and / or Memory Care at Somerby in Mobile, AL, once a week, making and baking organic dog treats for the animals at the local humane shelters.  Together the kids and seniors will mix, roll out, cut, bake and bag cookies that our Assisted Living residents will deliver to the Shelter once a month.  This is an ongoing project that we hope will never end: it is a win-win opportunity for our children, our seniors and our local shelters.  It's a whole lot of fun too!

Troops can sign up for one Saturday morning of their choice for an hour of baking.  We can have two groups of 6 girls baking and rolling at the same time as long as there is 2 adults with each group.   

 The fun begins at 10 am, and 1 hour should be plenty of time.

 Contact Sue Williams SUM 804 for more info or to sign up your troop. You can reach me at suefwilliams@msn.com or at 251-661-2810.
