CBES PTO Hosts Grandparents Day Lunch

Last Friday, September 7th Carolina Beach Elementary School celebrated “Grandparents Day” during each class’s lunch hour. The PTO provided drinks and desserts for each students “Special someone.” National Grandparents Day falls each year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. It's not a holiday invented to sell cards and flowers. It was initiated at the grassroots level by West Virginian Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade, with the behind-the-scenes support of her husband Joseph L. McQuade. They had 15 children, 43 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. Mrs. McQuade wanted Grandparents Day to be a family day. She envisioned families enjoying small, private gatherings, perhaps even a family reunion, or participating in community events.
