’Twas the week before Christmas, and the Bucyrus Campus was ringing with the sounds of the season. The annual holiday concert began with a hand-clapping, toe-tapping version of “Joy to the World,” performed by the adult choir—made up of clients and volunteers.
Next, the four-year-olds from the Giraffe Room joined the adults for “Jingle Bells” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” The kids dressed the part, wearing construction-paper antlers and shaking jingling noisemakers in time to the music.
Several soloists shared their talent and holiday spirit, too. Donald Fry from the Akachi Unit, sang “Oh Holy Night,” accompanying himself on piano. Other selections ranged from “Up on the House-Top” to a rendition of “Blue Christmas” that had Elvis fans of all ages singing and dancing. The concert concluded with some merry karaoke, featuring Joyce Davis, Vice President of Adult Day Services, belting out “Santa Baby.”
