The show that never ends.....

Hard Rock Casino in Tampa, Florida......here we come! March 31, 2010 some of the residents of Savannah Court & Savannah Cove, a senior living community located just off of I-4 in Orange County on Maitland Boulevard in Maitland, Florida, were taken on a day trip to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. As a volunteer, I attended as a chaperon.

The bus ready to load with happy and excited residents.

Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, we have arrived, are you ready for us?

Does Miss Y look ready to get at those slots?

On the bus anxiously waiting to hit the casino for a day of fun.

This was actually the 2nd trip to the casino so it was highly anticipated.

Cameras are not permitted in the "gambling areas".....oh well, my mistake!

Believe it or not we finished the day with a couple of winners. Mr. R at the slots with some of our ladies.

The words on the sign as you arrive....and it truly is the show that never ends. Looking for a great place to observe people, this would be the place. Want to learn to play blackjack just for fun? A lady that I met while at the casino provided me the following free website on Blackjack strategy. http://www.hitorstand.net/

On a serious note, April 19-25 is National Volunteer Week, to celebrate ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Do you do any volunteering? What can you do to make a difference?

Make a difference by leaving things a little better then you found them. A kind word or gesture goes a long way and often costs only a few minutes of your time. Whenever it feels like you have nothing to offer, remember that even the smallest favor can affect someones life in ways you could never anticipate.

By doing a kind gesture or helping another person.....you actually help yourself!
