THE BRONX - Some seniors got an early Mother's Day present and a big thank you today from students at P.S. 121.

Fifth-graders handed out roses to seniors at the Eastchester Garden Center Mother's Day party. The theme for the event was "wrapping a green ribbon around our seniors," because green symbolizes peace.

The Community Education Policy Business Alliance was also at the party to hold workshops on keeping seniors safe in the community.

This is the first time the organization has held this event. Participants hope it will continue in the future.
