On Friday May 25th, our RiverCourt Singers performed a concert entitled “Across the USA!”. It was standing room only as the ensemble of several residents performed favorites such as “Oklahoma”, and “I Left My Heart in San Fransisco”. The RiverCourt singers are under the direction of our Activities and Volunteer Director, Emma Bruns Riffelmacher. They were accompanied on piano by RiverCourt favorite Dick Sawyer.
RiverCourt welcomed Lady J. (Janet Parnes) who performed a lively performance of “The Proper Patient”. Our residents really enjoyed hearing about home remedies and medical practices from the mid to late 1800’s!
The presentation sparked a lively discussion amongst the residents about their own memories of home remedies used by their families, particularly when they were children! It’s always great fun when Lady J. comes to visit!!
