To the editor:

The holiday season is a time to spend with family and friends, but this can sometimes be difficult for seniors in our community — they may live far from family or be unable to travel due to a medical condition or the expense. This can make the holidays feel like a lonely time for some, when they might be especially missing the company of their loved ones.

Thanks to the support of more than 10 different groups in our community, the residents living at the Wyatt House, the Madison House, and the Madrona House enjoyed a holiday season filled with good company, music, and fun. We made wreaths, listened to young violinists and cellists, sang with caroling groups, broadened our horizons about worldly cultural winter celebrations, crafted with Girl Scouts and celebrated with new and old friends alike.

Our senior communities thrive because we live in a culturally rich, loving and giving town. These short days of winter have been joyous for Bainbridge Senior Living residents thanks to all of you. We are grateful for what you have shared with us and give thanks for all that we have. On behalf of our residents and staff at Bainbridge Senior Living, I would like to personally thank all of the amazing community groups who have devoted their time to helping our seniors enjoy a joyful and heartwarming holiday.
