— The resident choir at Twin Cedars Senior Living Center got into the holiday spirit recently by singing a medley of Christmas carols.

Residents performed four solos: "O Holy Night" by Floyd Nower, "Where Are You Christmas" by Janice Rudy, "White Christmas" by Gerry Selman, and "Away in the Manger" by Michael Sepanak.

Family and friends delighted in the spirt of the evening. The solos brought a hushed tone of quiet contemplation to the room, followed by rousing cheers when each song ended.

After the performance by the choir and soloists, residents and visitors tucked into refreshments, accompanied by punch and coffee. Lots of hand-holding, hugging, and sharing of best wishes for a happy holiday season ensued.

Tamara Singer, Twin Cedars manager, said she's proud of the annual festive celebration.
