Louanne Rice

My grandmother is a caring, loving, respectful and is a compassionate person. My grandmother and my grandfather love to hang out with me and my sister. She shows respect to her family and others around her. She loves taking me garage saling and hanging out. She loves everyone around her. She helps people that can’t do things for them self at her job. She enjoys hanging out with me when she can. I am thankful to have her as my grandmother. I love my family as much as love my grandma.

Annette Thieverge

My grandmother is a caring, loving, helpful, respectful, compassionate to her loved ones around her. She shows lots of respect even if it is helping her family or if its other people when she is in public. She is caring person when someone needs something. She loves when I take her around all the stores in Saratoga at Christmas time, or if it is just hanging out with family and friends. She enjoys taking care of her garden.

Dan and Kathie Swift

My Grandparents are the greatest because they do so much for me and my siblings. They give me rides to practice, watch my games and bring us to their lake house to kayak, paddleboard & tube. They are the sweetest and most hardworking grandparents ever. Lauren (12).

When my grandparents lived in the Berkshires before moving to Saratoga, they would take us to the museum. It was one of my favorite places to visit and my best memories. Sydney (10).

Oma & Papa take me to the library! Jack (7)

Joan Lane

My grandma Joan is the Greatest Grandparent because she is so caring. One of my favorite memories of her is when my sisters and I were younger she would always take us to Cold Stone for ice-cream and let us get the cupcakes to take home. She also is the BEST at making fried dough! Joan is a grandma of 7 and a great grandma of 4!

Misty Straus

Misty is the best grandma because she is so much fun! She always takes us out, shopping, and to the beach. Whenever she is around I am always laughing and smiling. I love my grandma!


Karen Rhodes

My grandma is the Greatest Grandparent because she is always by my side through all my biggest milestones. From helping me move into my first college dorm to my first apartment, she was there every step of the way! My grandma is a grandma of 7 and a great grandma of 3. She always makes each of us feel special. On our birthdays every year we get a phone call of her singing us happy birthday and she takes us out to dinner. My grandma is the GREATEST!
