Ukeleles, Song and Dance !
August 18, 2017
August 13th dawned sunny and warm. It was a perfect summer day and we at Montpelier Memory Cafe wondered how many folks would give up outdoor activities to come to the Montpelier Senior Activity Center to listen to volunteers Bob Barrett and Rich Atkinson , joined by several musician friends, as they sang and played songs we knew and loved.
We set up tables of food and brewed a pot of coffee. People started trickling in as the musicians tuned up. Then the magic began....the Ukulele Players sang songs that we all knew, and many were very dance-able. Memory Cafe participants are known for their enthusiastic sing alongs and exuberant group dances; this Cafe was no exception.
