Danville, VA-- One nursing home in Danville had quite a few grandchildren stop by Sunday. That's because Sunday marks National Grandparents Day.
Children and grandchildren took time out to spend time with their loved ones. They had lunch, watched TV and chatted.
Roman Eagle Memorial Home formally celebrated Grandparents Day on Friday.
One grandchild visits his grandparents every week at the home. He said taking the time out to celebrate grandparents is very important.
"Spending their time with the older generation here at Roman Eagle Nursing Home was a very respectful thing because they are the past generation they are the people who help lay the ground works for what we are today without the past you can't have a future," said Brian Keith.
The nursing home also did something a little special for the residents on Sunday. they held a spelling bee and gave away a gift to the winner.
