Glenshane Irish Folk Duo at the Senior Center
Thursday, March 9th at 1:00 P.M.
‘Put Your Irish On’ and enjoy some wonderful entertainment by Jean
and John Nesbitt known as Glenshane Irish Folk Duo. John hails
from Northern Ireland, Jean is a New Englander, and they have
performed together for 30 years.
Their music will pull at your heartstrings and tickle your funny bone
with their beautiful Irish wit. Their lively accompaniment on several
instruments insures a toe-tapping, rollicking good time.
This program is offered free of charge thanks to a generous grant
from the Whitman Cultural Council, which is supported by the
Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Light Refreshments will be served
My sincere appreciation and a heartfelt thank you goes out to all who participated in our “Santa’s Elves for Whitman Seniors” Giving Tree at the Senior Center. The response was overwhelming. With 156 gift cards to Whitman establishments donated, you were able to brighten the holidays for over fifty of our very grateful senior neighbors. We were fortunate to meet many kind and generous people who came into the Senior Center to take tags from the Giving Tree. We met grandmo...thers with grandchildren, adult children of elder parents, senior citizens, town employees and volunteers, and many people who weren’t familiar with the Senior Center. I was contacted by an employee of a Whitman business whose office staff pays $2 each week to wear jeans to work on Casual Friday. All of the money they collect is donated to a local charity at the end of the year. Our Giving Tree was the fortunate recipient of that very generous donation. Again, the response was heartwarming, overwhelming, and a true community effort.
Our Giving Tree began this past Christmas as a pilot project, not knowing what to expect for participation or results. Due to its overwhelming success, this pilot project will now be an annual tradition at the Senior Center. For our Second Annual “Santa’s Elves for Whitman Seniors” Giving Tree in November of 2017, I am happy to report that we’re going to need a bigger tree!
Thank you to all and very best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.
Barbara J. Garvey, Director
