made, the stu­dents en­ter­tained them with songs and danc­ing.

Fol­low­ing Thurs­day’s per­for­mance, every­one was treated to cook­ies and juice.

“ This is such a great day for the vet­er­ans and se­niors,” said Wil­hel­mus van Hal, recre­ation co­or­di­na­tor with the Har­bour View Hospi­tal vet­er­ans unit. “For our vet­er­ans and se­niors to be able to sit and lis­ten to th­ese young voices and see their en­thu­si­asm as they per­form, it’s re­ally some­thing. You can tell from their per­for­mance that the kids re­ally en­joy it as well.”

Branch 126 sup­plies the vet­er­ans’ names for the cards and also pays for the bus which trans­ports the stu­dents to Har­bour View.

“ We ap­pre­ci­ate the co-op­er­a­tion of every­one in­volved in mak­ing this hap­pen each year,” McPhail said. “ There is so much en­joy­ment for the vet­er­ans and se­niors, for that rea­son we’ll keep do­ing it as long as we can.”
