Volunteering With Our Older Forgotten Children
For over 8 years I’ve been organizing a Singalong for the residents of Greenfield Senior Living in Strasburg, VA. I put together a program of old time American favorites and gospel music. The program includes the opportunity for the residents to reminisce and share with everyone good memories of yesteryear. I put together binders with copies of the music and words so everyone can sing along.
I also spend time visiting with those who are lonely and those who are not in good health. A couple in their 70s got married there a few weeks ago. They asked me to sing for their wedding. They chose Let Me Call You Sweetheart.
These folks are special and offer a lot of joy to each other as they are encouraged to share their experiences.
I am privileged to have the opportunity to share with them.
