I got out of class and rushed to put all of my school supplies safely away in a cubby, go to the bathroom, and grab the camera because I was going on a Music Club benefit! The four Music Club girls, the girls’ Staff, and I trotted down the path that leads across the field to the Music Room so as not to be late meeting the van. We went down the path, into the Weight Room, into the Music Room, and out the side door only to be greeted by the big white van. We got in, and then waited for the Music Club boys to pile in. Once the boys were settled, Mr. Meyers got into the van and drove us off to the Hurricane Rehabilitation Center. The longest part of the drive seemed to us to be getting from the Ranch to the main road.
We arrived at our destination, and the residents of the Rehab Center stared at us in awe as we got ready to play some music for them. Two boys began by playing the guitar and singing a song by From First to Last. The whole group then sang our Valentine song called “You’ll be in my Heart” from the major motion picture Tarzan. Afterward, we all passed out the Valentine cards we made previously at the Ranch. One woman, Evelyn, followed us around the facility and danced. Some of the residents requested we play in their individual rooms, and we did. I think we made some people’s days, for sure!
We left the Rehab Center and headed to the grocery store to pick up root beer and ice cream. We drove back to the Ranch, got our dinner plates from our respective campuses and then met back in the Music Room to enjoy our dinner and delicious root beer floats!
