Haul out the Holly and put up the tree it’s time to share a little Christmas!
This week I “donned my Christmas apparel” and did a little Christmas caroling at a few of the Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Residences in Lake Charles!
Since 1988 as both an active member and now ( sustaining member) of the Junior League of Lake Charles I have been a part of many projects that enrich the Lake Charles community and the lives of residents.
I enjoy being a part of the Lake Charles community and volunteering whenever I can and I am proud to be a part of the Liberty Belles! This choral group consists of giving and sharing sustaining Jr. League members who take time to use their musical talent blessing the residents of Lake Charles Nursing Homes and Assisted Living facilities.
Four times a year, The Liberty Belles troupe to Lake Charles Nursing Homes and Assisted Living facilities with a choral performance. We change up the song list and Christmas is always a special program of loved carols and traditional Christmas tunes. This volunteerism is an act of sharing the Christmas season of love with others .
Many residents of Nursing Homes or Assisted Living residences don’t have regular visits from family or friends. The holiday season can be a lonely time for some and a kind word, holding a hand and a smile go a long way with these residents! They listen attentively and you can see the faces of the residents light up with Christmas cheer and some residents will sing along with us!
We always speak to each resident and wish them a Merry Christmas at the end of our performance!!
This is one volunteer event that I look forward to and arrange my schedule to be able to attend practices and performances.
I think we sound pretty good too! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
