A fes­tive visit from Santa’s An­gels

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

How thrilled and im­pressed were the res­i­dents at An­drews of Char­lot­te­town when Santa’s An­gels, a group of fe­male and male teenagers along with young adults, ar­rived on Christ­mas morn­ing, en­tered our din­ing room and en­ter­tained us with carols from 7:30 to 8 a.m. while the res­i­dents en­joyed their break­fast. When the car­olling ended, th­ese young peo­ple went to each ta­ble and treated the se­niors to chocolate-coated cook­ies and bright­ened their day by pre­sent­ing them with stuffed an­i­mals as they stopped for a lit­tle chat. One se­nior was asked what her favourite carol was and she re­sponded, Sil­ver Bells. She pro­ceeded to tell the vis­i­tor that one year she had put on a Christ­mas con­cert with her Grade 4 stu­dents and one young boy sang Sil­ver Bells. When­ever she hears that carol, his im­age comes to her mind. Ap­par­ently, the guest re­lated this to their di­rec­tor. Over he comes to the ta­ble, stoops down and sings Sil­ver Bells. What a thought­ful ges­ture. In to­day’s world, the news­pa­pers are filled with write­ups about the heinous acts com­mit­ted by teenagers and young adults, while on the other hand, the youth who are gen­er­ous, kind and ded­i­cated go un­no­ticed.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Santa’s An­gels and a sin­cere thanks you for making the day for se­niors such a mem­o­rable one. Kath­leen Chisholm, CND, An­drews of Char­lot­te­town
