No doubt, this social distancing thing is hard on all of us. Social gatherings are the lifeblood of Indwell’s programs, and yet—as for so many—social distancing rules and recommendations have meant that for the time-being we can’t meet together as we usually do. For tenants at the Perkins Centre in Hamilton, Friday Music Club is one such program that’s been impacted.
That didn’t stop our Hamilton apartments team from trying something new. Inspired by videos of people in Italy playing music from their balconies, they found a way for this important social “gathering” to still happen. Equipped with a few pylons and an extension cord, tenant Bill Vis enthusiastically took to the parking lot and played some of his favourite hymns for tenants and neighbours to enjoy “together.”
