There’s even more music in the air these days at Allerton House at Hancock Park, thanks to a bright idea from Bonnie Costello. Bonnie, a resident of the Quincy assisted living residence since 2012, says, “We have a lot of entertainment programs here, and I noticed a lot of people singing along. So I thought, ‘How about starting a singing group?’”
Bonnie, who sang in her church choir for 20 years, brought the idea to the activities director, and the residents’ signing group began meeting this summer, singing the classics like “My Wild Irish Rose,” “Let Me Call You Sweetheart,” and “Yankee Doodle.” “Everyone is welcome,” says Costello. “You just have to like to sing!”
