For the seventh year in a row, students from Black Fox Elementary visited the Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer's Center of Excellence, Collegedale to sing for the seniors.
The residents at the Alzheimer's memory care community look forward to this yearly tradition, as the kids -- from third to fifth grades -- performed selections from popular, rock and roll, Hollywood and Broadway hits.
"Oohs" and "aahs" echoed as the award-winning soloists and dancers demonstrated their talents for the audience.
"It was so nice to see the residents so responsive and conversing with all the children and responding so positively to the performances," says Kristen Rader, music instructor at Black Fox Elementary.
Morning Pointe invites students of all ages to share their talents with the residents, creating intergenerational fun that's worthy of a standing ovation as part of the Meaningful Day(tm) program.
