Ukulele group plays gig at Ludington Woods

February 24, 2019

Ukulele players performed a line up of singalongs Friday afternoon for residents at Ludington Woods Assisted Living Center. It was only the second “gig” for the ukulele group that meets monthly at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts (LACA), and it was their first time performing at Ludington Woods.

The five group members sang and strummed their ukuleles in time, led by their organizer, Meredith Hanson.

“We’re going to be playing some familiar songs, and we’d like you to sing along,” Hanson told the audience members.

There were about 15 residents in the audience, some of them from the assisted living part of the center, and many from the memory care section, said Jessica Billings, Ludington Woods life enrichment director.

“The majority (of residents) really look forward to having entertainment, and in the wintertime especially,” Billings said. “We appreciate them volunteering their time to come and play for the residents. We’re always looking for someone to come in and spread some joy.”
