Lights of the Lakes Shows – May

5/14 – Young at Heart (Hales Corners)

My first Lights of the Lakes show in May was presented to Young At Heart, a senior fellowship group affiliated with the St. Mary Catholic Faith Community in Hales Corners, WI. According to the Young at Heart web page,

The St. Mary’s Young at Heart group was created in 1995 to provide social and educational opportunities for mature adults, enhance member health and wellness, and promote activities which may result in earnings for the group and our Faith Community.

Activities are defined in a quarterly newsletter, and include day trips, picnics, plays, concerts, dinners, etc.

The venue for the program was Clifford’s Supper Club, a popular gathering place in Hales Corners.

The third Lights of the Lake show in May took place at Jackson Crossings, an independent and assisted living senior community in Jackson, WI. When I arrived, I discovered a nice promotional flyer posted on the premises.

The show was well-attended. While today’s audience was not large, the attendees were appreciative of the beauty and historical significance of our Great Lakes lighthouses. They also learned about the importance of the lakes for shipping bulk cargoes to market.

The residents of independent living senior communities often make up some of the best audiences I get for the Lights of the Lakes programs I present to seniors. Today was no exception. About 25 retirees enjoyed today’s show at Nicolet Highlands.
