“Just want to thank you all (the performers, the River Institute and Hanover College) for making last night’s performance available to our residents. They are still talking today about how much they enjoyed the show! I saw the look of wonder and pure enjoyment on the faces of so many in our audience, even those with varying stages of Alzheimer’s. As I said last night, many of our residents are unable to respond as they once did, but believe me, they were totally engaged and caught up in the moment. How wonderful that you all are able to reach inside so many people and touch something long forgotten, or trigger a lovely old memory. For our audience at least, your group did so much more than offer an educational and lively performance. Just like “Jenny,” I think many were transported to another time, another place, and for an hour at least, they were the people they once were. On behalf of our residents, once again, thank you for a truly amazing evening. I hope you all understand how your talent and caring hearts can touch so many people in so many ways…what a gift you all have!” —
