    Eldermusic is expanding

    We have many requests for our services, and many volunteer singers, but few music leaders.

    What I really need is people who can stand in there and lead the singing for an hour once a month.

    I reached out to two of my guitar-playing friends in the last couple days whom I know are capable of leading, and they both jumped on the bus!

    So, we're adding 2 more facilities to our calendar in January. That brings us to 22 different facilities!

    I never imagined how busy I could be in retirement.

    Quite frankly, it's our 25 or so volunteers that make this happen week after week. It's amazing to see.

    If you've ever tried recruiting people to do volunteer work, even for one event, you know it can be frustrating.

    In this case, I send out the schedule and our volunteers always show up at 20 different facilities every month, some are even going twice a week.
