Elementary students spread holiday cheer

December 7, 2006

Albany - - Some Elementary students tuned their voices to spread a little holiday cheer Thursday morning.

West Town Elementary students performed Christmas carols for residents at Palmyra Nursing home.

They sang holiday classics as residents joined in and clapped along.

Workers at the nursing home say it's important for residents to participate in activities like this.  

"The residents enjoy Christmas and they're not able to go to your choir groups and the church groups and we bring it to them," says nursing home employee Sandra Tillery.

Later this month, residents will also participate in a Christmas parade.

The Silver Buckles line dancers will join them to help celebrate.
