CANTON -- The residents at Maplewood campus have formed their own handbell choir.

“During the holiday season, a hand bell choir group visited to entertain us,” said Patience Boswell, activities leader. “People really enjoyed it and expressed an interest in learning how to play.”

The Society of the United Helpers Wish Book program donated handbells for the group to use.

“One of the benefits of the Wish Book program is that you are making a gift toward an item that is meaningful to our residents,” said Lori Smithers, development director.

Items for the Wish Book are recommended by residents, staff and family members. The items are then put into an actual Wish Book, specific to each of the United Helpers facilities for visitors and family members to make a gift toward.
