“Silent Night,” “Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer” and “Christmas Time is Here.”
Tina Norton, manager at Sunny Acres, said she was happy to have the chorus visit the 15- person facility off Lums Road and that the residents enjoy seeing students. A few weeks ago, the facility received a visit from members of a local Boy Scout troop, who helped trim the tree and threw a holiday party for the residents, she noted.
So when Moon contacted Sunny Acres about having his chorus come by, Norton quickly agreed.
“I knew the residents would like it,” she said. “It brightened their day.”
Many of the residents who gathered in the facility’s living room to hear the students sang along to the familiar songs themselves and clapped for the students at the end of their performance. The experience was a good one for the students who participated as well.
“I really liked doing it because it’s the holidays and it’s nice to spread joy to other people,” said Victoria Heath, a fourth- grade member of the chorus.
Cameron Mink, a four th- grader at the school, also said she enjoyed the experience and that her favorite song to sing is “Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer.”
“I liked singing and I think it’s really cool to sing to older people and bring joy to them,” Mink said.
