CHO­RUS

Cecil Whig - - WE ATHE R -

“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.
