Sunshine Singers Spreading Cheer!

This year I’ve really enjoyed being a part of a group of women through the Junior League called the Sunshine Singers. We meet once or twice a week and gather together to spread smiles and warm hearts to the seniors of our community. We enjoy seeing their faces light up when we start singing to their favorite music that seems to bring back fond memories for them. Here are some photos from our visits to these special elderly friends.

This time of year we sing a lot of Christmas carols in honor of the holiday season and we pass out Santa hats and jingle bells as they sing along. After the singing portion has commenced, we visit with them as they tell us stories, laugh, hug and hold hands.

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the elderly and since my grandparents have passed I look forward to these Monday evenings! It is so fulfilling knowing that you have just brought a bright spot to those in the senior community who may only have your visit to make their day.

I’m thankful and proud to be a part of this special group! The Sunshine Singers, spreading cheer among the elderly!

If you or someone you know would like to join the the Junior League of San Antonio please find more information on jlsa.org. Make the holidays memorable by doing something special for someone.
