Every year in December since 2011, the Men of Delta Sigma Phi goes to a local nursing, St. Benedict's Nursing home to sing Christmas carols.
The aides, nurses, and the Delta Sigs wheeled the residents into the lobby where we were going to sing and play bowling. We took the time to introduce ourselves and talk to each resident. To start off we play a game of bowling with the residents to become more acquainted and they absolutely love it. After the game, we all gather in a circle in sing songs, and pass out candy canes with a nice message.
It is an amazing experience. Lovely. We wish you could be there to hear the residents sing with us. There is something about singing while someone is singing to you at the same time. We were singing to them, and, as they joined in with us, they were singing to us. What a marvelous feeling in that room! I wish you could have been there to see the enthusiasm and fun that the children brought to the songs. We wish you could have been there to hear several residents leave the room humming a melody that they had just heard. Smiles, so many smiles.
