1st Nebraska spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon with the residents of Elk Ridge Village, a retirement community on Omaha’s west side. The Village has both independent living and an assisted living facilities and we played at both of them.
Our program consisted of modern Christmas arrangements, including Oh, How Joyfully, Wexford Carol, and Mary Did You Know? followed by a sing-along of several favorite carols. The residents sang heartily and you could tell how much they enjoy a traditional Christmas celebration.
Following our time at Independent Living we repeated our program down the road at Assisted Living. Both audiences were very appreciative of our performance and we were invited to return in May for a Patriotic program honoring veterans.
