A festive visit from Santa’s Angels
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
