Horse Lake students bring gift of music to the elderly of the community

A total of 75 students from Horse Lake Elementary School travelled with their classroom teachers Leslie Dickson, Marie Matwick, Margaret Ramsay and Marissa Ball to hit the road with their musical troupe to visit and entertain seniors on the morning of Dec. 15.

The classes went on a Christmas Concert tour to Carefree Manor and Fischer Place/Mill Site Lodge to perform for the senior citizens, says school receptionist Vicky Santelli.

“The children and their performances brought smiles of enjoyment, as well as the warm feeling of Christmas to everyone who attended.

“Their teachers remarked that all the students were courteous and showed their best behaviour.”

Santelli adds the students’ concert performance was “well done” and presented as a gift of music to the elderly of the community.
