Wyoming News Now: “Laramie senior finds community online”

Senior Planet Supporter Germaine St. John spoke with Wyoming News Now about her experience participating in Senior Planet’s online programming throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As much as this heartache that’s brought so much to our world through this pandemic, I can truthfully say that I was given a special gift by having Senior Planet be the silver lining in my life during this time.”

Germaine also explained how the relationships formed during classes on Zoom have blossomed outside of the virtual world and into everyday life.

“You would be surprised about the number of friendships that develop both as a result of these programs but offline too. I have many that I have made acquaintance with on various programs I have been on and now we email back and forth or even telephone occasionally if there’s something we want to visit about.”
