JCHC Annual Dinner – June 20, 2016
What a wonderful time we all had at the JCHC Annual Board Meeting and Dinner, held at Crystal Plaza in Livingston on June 20. A beautiful touch to the evening were the floral arrangements that adorned the tables, made by our residents at the Lester Senior Housing Community. They got together the day before, and under the guidance of Megan Fainsinger from ARTS By the People, created 14 beautiful floral arrangements for the tables. Each centerpiece featured photos of the residents from all four JCHC communities. After the event, the floral arrangements were given to each community to enjoy. Committee chair and board member Roberta Zweifler expressed her gratitude for the residents that helped make the night a success.
As always, a highlight of the event was a performance by the JCHC Resident Choir, who delighted the crowd with a series of songs depicting a summer camp theme — Camp JCHC. Choir members all wore baseball caps with “Camp JCHC” written on the front; playing tambourines and dancing the hokey pokey, the choir encouraged the guests to join in the fun — and they did! Everyone enjoyed singing “Ballin’ the Jack” as Aggie, acting as Camp JCHC Activities Director, demonstrated the dance.
The choir also sang “Consider Yourself” and “Food, Glorious Food (from “Oliver”, with some original JCHC lyrics for the latter song), a medley of friendship songs including “Hiney Matov”, “With a Little Help From My Friends” (Beatles), “You’ve Got a Friend” (Carole King), “the Games People Play”(by The Spinners, with original words to fit the JCHC) and “Sing “by Joe Raposo. The audience was given song sheets and sang along with the choir for “Games People Play” and “Sing.” During a musical interlude, several residents got up to dance to Frank Sinatra songs.
What a great night!
