On Friday September 5th, eight Bright Invention members took our form Click to the Samuel F. Green House in Elkins Park, a senior independent living community of Federation Housing, Inc. In a bright community room, we performed a slightly modified version of Click for about 40 seniors in residence there. Rising Leader Randi Hickey stage managed, ensemble member Kevin Chick had his Bright Invention debut, and, for the first time, Artistic Director Jennifer MacMillan played in with the ensemble!
By all accounts it was a smashing success, and we mingled with the residents afterwards who shared their delight and questions with us. White Pines will be growing this Initiative in the future, so if you have any ideas about senior centers that might support a visit from us, please let us know!
Our partner at Federation Housing, Kathy Sarlson, was extraordinarily helpful and supportive, and she shared these pictures with us!
