Topic: Me, the retiree to play for the seniors!
Ok, it is official! I am scheduled on two different days this month to go to senior facilities and play about an hour for the residents. The first will be a nursing home where my mother-in-law lived last year prior to her death, the second is a low-income senior housing location with about 40 residents. I volunteered for the first and a friend of mine who plays a little and heard me play told his mom (a resident) about me and she is in charge of activities and asked me to come and play for them at their monthly birthday celebration. I am excited; nervous; and more than a little apprehensive, but I am going to go give it my best and see how it goes. What is the worst that could happen? They may not like what I do and never ask me back. I just thought this a way to share the joy of what I am doing and maybe bring a little cheer into their lives for an hour or so. I hope! Will do mostly older country songs that I think they will know and remember. Just wanted to share; will let everybody know how it goes after the 16th and 17th. Wish me luck!
