‘Melodiers’ show off Irish spirit

For several years, the “Senior Melodiers” — also known as the Founders Hall Band — have performed at area nursing homes and rehabilitation and senior living facilities.

On March 16, they performed at Glen Hill Center in Danbury. The program included several Irish melodies in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. On this occasion, the band was at nearly full strength in numbers, with nine out of 10 members participating.

To schedule a performance by the band, or if you play an instrument and would like to join, contact Darla or Bernard Shaw. The band has four gigs to fill from now until July (one a month) and more for the fall. It practices on Friday mornings from 10 to 11 in Founders Hall.
