Residents and guests of Meadowview Nursing Home in Northfield were entertained Friday, Dec. 14 by the Meadowview Choir.

There are about 30 choir members, according to activities director Sharon Wolfe.

“They’re directed by Doreen D’Costa,” Wolfe said. “That’s including the Rockettes, led by Tina Gatto, the director of recreation.”

The group spent some time preparing for the hour-long show.

“They have been practicing for about one and a half months, at least three times a week and then more towards the end,” Wolfe said. “They are very proud of their accomplishments.”

She said quite a few families joined residents for the event. 

“I emceed the show and also read ‘The Night Before Christmas,’  which was dedicated to one of our residents that is no longer with us. Her name was Shirley Roberts.” 

The staff tries to come up with something different every year, Wolfe said.

“All of the Recreation Department works together to make the day a success,” she said,  “including the punch.”
