December 13, members of Leesville’s Executive Council spent their Saturday with the folks at Springmoor life care & retirement community. Members wished the residents of Springmoor “Happy holidays!” by singing classic Christmas carols and holiday songs.

The students came to school at 4:15, adorned in gay apparel (Holiday sweaters and even elf hats were abound), as the weather was cold and windy, for a final “dress rehearsal” in front of the school.Holiday sweaters They arrived at Springmoor by 5:00.

Springmoor is divided into two facilities: residential condo/apartment style housing, as well as a nursing home. Executive Council members caroled in the nursing ward. Students say in four focal areas, where residents gathered to socialize — often the site of a television and several couches.

However, they also sang as they went through the hallways, to ensure residents unable to attend could still hear the music.

The set list included:
“Jingle Bells”
“Frosty the Snowman”
“Santa Claus is Coming to Town”
“Silent Night”
“Let it Snow”
“Winter Wonderland”
“Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”

Devin Miller, senior and Secretary of Executive Council, said, “Everyone had a good time. Seeing the elderly people happy and singing along was a very rewarding experience.”

Executive Council plans to continue the Springmoor caroling project for years to come.
