Holiday Joy Spans The Generations
DSSM Neponsit Adult Day Health Care registrants were honored to hear the talented singers from Rockaway peninsula high schools perform Hanukkah and Christmas songs for the holiday season. It has become an annual tradition for The Scholars’Academy students accompanied by guidance counselor Lorry Rozman and music teacherMr. Leicht to join the seniors at the Adult Day Health Care Center for an Intergenerational Sing-Along. For the third year in a row the students at Channel View High School also performed Hanukkah and Christmas songs. These students have the great opportunity to be trained by their chorus teacher, Katherine Patrylo, and choral artist Pamela Jones from the Metropolitan Opera Guild.
The Rockaway Artists Alliance Writers Group members and the center’s registrants performed in holiday skits.
Cultural institutions also shared the holiday spirit. Metropolitan Museum of Art Access Outreach Instructors Nitza Horner and Pamel Lawton invited the seniors to visit the museum’s historic Christmas tree decorated with medieval angel ornaments. Museum of Modern Art Outreach Instructor Sally Paul inspired the registrants to use their imagination to create their own decorative holiday ornaments.
DSSM Neponsit Adult Day Health Care staff is looking forward to an exciting year ahead filled with interesting therapeutic activities and caring for the seniors’ health care needs.
