Saint Patrick’s Day virtual variety show

March 22nd, 2021

The Points West Living and Connecting Care Saint Patrick’s day virtual variety show was, in the words of CEO Linda Revell, “a wonderful celebration of the end of winter, the beginning of spring, and a rejuvenation of everything green…”

Volunteer performers

Several volunteer performers from past shows were back, showcasing their broad repertoire of songs – this time tending towards the Irish; and some new musicians joined as well.

A surprise entry in this show was the general manager of Points West Living Lac La Biche, Iona Wolstenholme sweetly singing the Irish ballad Molly Malone, and the rather saucy ditty ‘Maids, When You’re Young’.

A real variety

There was Irish dancing, care partners with modern dance moves to old Irish tunes, leg wrestling (yes a quick video of two care partners at PWL Slave Lake leg wrestling, at 2:10:45 on the video counter), and more.
