Our November Program features a Patriotic Sing-A-Long with entertainer Steve Chapman and Wear a HAT to Luncheon Day. Steve has been entertaining seniors for many years in northeast Florida. This is a great theme for Veteran’s Day which is in November. Steve’s program is more than just playing a keyboard and singing. It is interactive, humorous and nostalgic. He has performed for many organizations and even American Cruise Lines. Wear any kind of hat or even a fascinator. If you wear a hat you will get a ticket to be entered into a drawing for a prize. Sing, wear a hat and laugh as this an entertaining program!
