I traveled to Port Chester for a recreation dept. gig in the Kings St. Park. Great kids and fun counselors. It’s so important that the counselors participate and have fun. Often, the teens don’t loosen up, and the little kids see that and react similarly. These counselors had it down, and a party happened.

I then headed back to Madison for a return trip to Strong House – an elder facility I’ve been to a couple of times. I took my bag o’ shakers – a trick I picked up from my toddlers’ experience – and it was was really good. It kept the folks in the game, and we had a hoot! Looks like I’ll be back regularly, and they’re working on a grant for music and Alzheimer’s, so I hope to expand my understanding of this powerful thing called music. Always curious…..
