Several families joined the staff at Kids Discovery Museum and members of the Bainbridge Chorale last Saturday to spread holiday cheer as part of KiDiMu’s new community service program.

Children, their parents and seniors at the Madison Avenue House gathered together to sing holiday favorites, exchange stories and make memories at a craft table.

After the group decorated their “gay apparel” — festive scarves — Angie Godfrey and Hans Griesser from Bainbridge Chorale brought everybody together by leading carols on guitar and grand piano. Several residents mentioned how much they appreciated the opportunity to hear the little ones’ laughter fill their retirement home.

“As a proud member of a vibrant, connected and giving community, KiDiMu is excited to expand the learning opportunities we offer to include new volunteer community service projects for families with children and youth of all ages,” said executive director Susie Burdick.

“Community service offers children and their families a chance to connect over shared experiences, which helps build empathy, leadership and character. It is also a way to meet individuals and gain experiences they may not have otherwise had,” she added.

The children’s museum is planning to offer a variety of quarterly projects in 2017, including partnership with the farm community and beach cleanup.
