For over one month preparations for the Staff Talent Show had been under way. Activities Director, Marriam Hameed was concerned that there would not be enough performances to lapse three quarters of an hour. On Wednesday, July 15, the much awaited Talent Show kept everyone entertained for over one hour!
Marketing Director, Kelly Halteh played host. The show started with the fashion show component: Kelly glowed as if she’d stepped out of a fairy tale in her evening gown; we saw Chef Bonita Woods in her extraordinary periodic dress, Aden and the entire nursing team paired up with Ribka from Genesis Rehab to represent Ethiopia. Executive Director, Marilen King shared her jokes. Karina and Cecilia of the Dining Room Team did a dance from Bolivia, Josephine took us to Sierra Leone and Vicki Johnson turned into a chameleon enacting poems by Laura E. Richards. Office Manager, Amy Reid and her dance partner, Andy Musser blew us all away with their swing dancing! Chef Bonita showed yet another talent with her beautiful strong singing voice. (Bonita and Irena are to hold a Singalong mid-August). There were more dances and impromptu performances because everyone was having so much fun entertaining and watching. We all look forward to the next Talent Show.
