February 22, 2010: Acapellics Anonymous had a wonderful time performing for patients at the Rehabilitaion unit at Cornwall Community Hospital, Second Street site.

After we sang for the main group, we were requested to sing an encore for the patients at the door as they wheeled by.

Then, at the suggestion of staff, we toured the facility singing for patients unable to move to the Gym, then to others who wanted more. The half-hour gig filled a full hour.

We were followed by one enthusiastic but very slow-moving groupie in a wheelchair for whom we provided a push while she steered.

One prominent member of the Arts community, Ron Sullivan, attended the performance, and appeared quite pleased when we serenaded him in his room.

Here is a link to an article in the CCH Newsletter with a story and video by staffer Carol White of part of our serenade for Ray Thompson, pictured below.

There were lots of photo ops; we’ll post pictures here as they arrive.
