Caroling at Columbine Senior Living
Saturday, December 17 at 2:00pm

Join Foothills members Gailmarie Kimmel and William Timpson for an informal, unrehearsed and heart-filled hour of caroling. We’re joyful to resume this 25-year-long tradition after a 2-year hiatus. All are invited to gather and sing with friends from the Fort Collins community at Columbine West Health and Rehab, 940 Worthington Circle, this Saturday 12/17 at 2:00pm. Solo songs or individual readings are also welcome. Festive hats and clothes much encouraged for these elders’ enjoyment! Masks are required. Please let Benjamin know you’ll be coming at, and someone will greet you upon arrival at Columbine on Saturday.
