Name That Tune!!

Well, we got through our Name That Tune competition and it was a blast!!  We had 25 contestants and they all did great.  About 80 people attended the event which was filled with laughter and cheering.  One of our very own residents won the competition and our Elmcroft Jazz Trio also played a couple of numbers for entertainment.  The trio is made up of Ben (a cook) on the sax, Jamie (our Resident Director) on the drums and me on the keyboards.  We had a TV personality as our emcee and that was the best decision we ever could have made.  He heard our trio and asked if we could come on his show the next Monday.  It is called "3 Plus You" and is on at 11 a.m. in the morning.  So, the following Monday morning, we appeared on the show.  They all loved it and, asked us to come back the week of June 6th for a different segment every day!  They want to feature Elmcroft Assisted Living every day with one segment being our music, another day of crafts, another day of food we serve, another day of "How To Choose An Assisted Living Home" and then the final one on Altzheimer's information!!  What better advertising could we get??  And it is FREE advertising.  We are all so excited about this.  And our Resident Director is flying high!  But, I'm not too excited about it, right?

I want to include a picture with this blog, so here is a set of crocheted cloths that I am featuring on Etsy.  I alternate between tatting and crocheting these days.  I need to get back to tatting, and I will.

Sounds like you are having a lot of fun!

Possibility that the music could be put on YouTube?
