The Senior’s Centre of Sylvan Lake was musically joyous and festive for the holiday season.

On Wednesday, December 7 seniors from all over Sylvan Lake including the Sylvan Lake Lodge gathered at the Seniors Centre to enjoy each other’s company, a good meal and the musical stylings of the H.J. Cody Choir. The event, which was organized and funded through the Rotary Club of Sylvan Lake, has been a staple of this community for many years with this year being no different.

“I have been in the Rotary for about three years now and this is the first year I have done the organizing,” Rotary member Travis Jones said. “The Senior Centre does all the setting up and then we help out with organizing and funding for the event. I think seniors love it.”

The catering was organized through the Rotary Club and members helped serve and clean up the meal. According to Jones, this is an event that the seniors of Sylvan Lake enjoy every year.

“They enjoy getting together and from what I have heard they really enjoy the students coming,” he said. “It’s a highlight for them.”

The choir serenaded the group with many Christmas Carols, after starting off with a rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

“I think it is a nice event and everyone is pretty happy,” Jones added.
