Executive Council reigns in the holiday cheer

Executive Council members carol to the residents of Springmoor retirement community. 18 students, as well as, Mr. Ferguson and Ms. Mayfield, council advisers attended the caroling.

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.
