Sing Australia

Hi Colin, the Ballina group sang at the Christmas break-up lunch of the Independent Retiree’s at the Ballina RSL Club. A combination of Australian songs & carols. We have done this gig for several years now & they love to join in singing with us.

My apologies to all at Kingswood for this late report

It was great to see so many in the audience for our Christmas visit to Regis Kingswood. Some of us remember the handful in the room when we first visited this new facility, and so a full crowd was wonderful. The audience was enthusiastic and involved, and afterwards many told us how much they had enjoyed our fun and energetic singing. It is always heartwarming to see the response from some of the less animated residents as familiar songs spark memories and produce smiles, tears, foot tapping or mouthing of words by those otherwise immobilised in their portable chairs. Thanks as always to everyone, and especially to Chris for his great conducting, Angela for the beautiful piano, Carmel for the song choice and Bob as MC - all significant roles for the success of this gig. Colleen Penny -Leader

Comment: No probs Colleen- thanks for the report and the photos. You and the Glenelg groups contribution to your community around Christmas time is incredible. You must all be so heartened by the response from the dear people you are singing to. Such joy to share at this time of the year is just so important. Congratulations

Sing Australia

Hi, Colin,
This photo was taken last night at Royal Freemasons Aged Facility in Sale. This facility has only been open for twelve months and the Lions Club in Sale invited us and the Sale City Band to entertain the residents with an evening of carols. We were thrilled to be invited especially with the Band, as they are well known throughout Gippsland. An entertaining evening was had by all.
We sang carols of course but also a few of our favourite songs, Shelter, Let there be Peace on Earth, Morning has broken, and As long as I have music. They were very well received.
Hopefully, this photo will be published in the local paper as well.
Regards,
Jocelyn Paterson (Leader, Sale)

Comment: Thanks for the great report and this wonderful achievement of the group. How nice for you to sing with the band. Well done. A fabulous way for you to finish the year. Congratulations and a very happy Christmas to you and the group.
