Though recent health concerns have kept some folks home, the sparse audience at the Aug. 25 karaoke party enjoyed many enthusiastic singers. Those who came early and stayed late included Bob Barnum, Ellen Brannigan, Erika Greenwood, Susan Kelleghan, Pat Kogok, Anna Le, Carolyn Mottola, David Noble, Julie Nulad, Rick Riley, Don Sunday, Pete Tupas, Tino Tupas, Wayne Urban, Vito Villomar and Richard Yokomi. Bee Santos chose to sing severaltunes from “The Sound of Music.” Carolyn Mottola dedicated her song to her friends who helped her during her recovery from surgery.
Later in the evening, another group of folks that love to sing arrived: Kyung Choi, Vinny Correnti, Sally Glausser, Tosca Lies and Kenny Nortorleva.
Karaoke parties are held every Wednesday in Clubhouse 1 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Attendees are asked to wear masks, and the microphones are sanitized for everyone’s protection. Practice sessions have returned to Clubhouse 6 on Mondays from 1-3 p.m.; this is an opportunity for performers to perfect an unfamiliar tune before the party.
