GrandPals

GrandPal Bob Swierczek

Ella Leving • May 10, 2024

Bob Swierczek, a United States Navy veteran, resides in Princeton, where he selflessly dedicates his time to various volunteer roles. He serves as a crossing guard for the police department, assists as fire police for the fire department, reads to kindergarten classes, and organizes trips to Washington, D.C. for fellow veterans.

“Every year that I read to the kindergarten classes it brings me joy listening to the comments from the kids on the books I read. Some of the rhyming books are fun to read and having the kids try and guess the last word that rhymes. This year my two boys enjoy the world atlas. They pick out states and I read about it, capital, flower, bird, and the flag. They are interested in different parts of the world also.

It’s very rewarding to see the kids progress throughout the year and their interest increasing on reading.

GrandPals is a wonderful program for both the adults and the children.”
