SPRINGHILL - For their March meeting, the Senior Citizens’ Council met at the spacious offices of the host club, the Springhill Senior Citizens’ and Retired Pensioners’ Club, 4 McDougal St.
The hours from 11 a.m. to 12 noon were for social chatting and an entertainment event. As entertainer, we had from Oxford the multi-talented Kin Rogers, who said: “It seems like I’ve always been involved in music. I started voice and piano lessons at a young age, continued these to high school Grade 11 and continued to Grade 12 with the Royal Conservatory of Music. I’ve learned to play many instruments along the way such as flute, piccolo, clarinet, saxophone (alto and tenor), guitar, ukulele, and all rhythm instruments: drums, xylophones, etc. Music is my passion and I enjoy sharing it with others. I am currently a stay-at-home mum who, as well, plays for several churches, funeral homes, and entertainment events.”
Kin was introduced by acting president Richard Cameron. With her beautiful voice and accompanying herself skillfully on the piano, Kin sang: “Danny Boy,” “Nobody Does It Better,” “There’s a Kind of Hush,” “I Come to The Garden Alone,” “Love Is Something if You Give It Away,” “Early One Morning,” “Squid Jiggin’ Ground,” and “Ballad of New Scotland.” Then, with a beautiful flute sound filling the room, Kin played on her flute: “Everybody Loves A Lover,” “Mister Sandman,” “School Days,” “Until It’s Time to Let You Go,” and “The Rose.”
