West Seattle New Year’s Eve: It’s already 2011 at The Mount

(Photos by Ellen Cedergreen for WSB)
On New Year’s Eve, every new hour brings the new year somewhere in the world. At Providence Mount St. Vincent this afternoon, residents, staffers, and volunteers were probably the first in West Seattle to ring in 2011; they did it on Parisian time – 3 pm Seattle time. The party included a prize wheel, and the winners included resident Melly (top photo). Another big feature – karaoke, with volunteer Mike Fox belting out a lively version of the French song “Louise“:

Other popular numbers included “Dust in the Wind” and “Hallelujah“:

    I tell ya! Those Senior Citizens nowadays, always in a hurry, can’t wait patiently for anything, just want instant gratification! ;)

    Wishing the Mount’s Seniors, and Seniors everywhere for that matter, a happy and healthy 2011! :cool:

    Dust In The Wind?

    35, before we know it, the 80-somethings at the Mount will want to be reminiscing to the Beatles, Stones, Hendrix, and Zeppelin! :o :lol:

    Was just talking w/ Boomer peers about what we would be singing at the nursing home singalongs. Our votes went to “She’s A Brick House” and “Superfreak”, of course sung 4/4 at an intolerably slow pace. Apparently we’ve started with “Dust In the Wind.” Groovy!

    Well not only the era of the song but the content… Kinda walks a fine line between morbid fixation and meditative detachment.

Sorry, comment time is over.
