So often “not so good” stories travel faster than lightening. This is an awesome story that has to be told.
It’s amazing how one kind gesture can inspire another.
The Jefferson Show Choir was asked to sing a Christmas song after they finished their lunch at a restaurant in Van Wert on Dec. 17. The request came from a customer who had herself been in choir for many years and told us that a song would just make her day.
Upon completion of singing two selections, the woman, as well as many other patrons, was crying.
As the students were preparing to leave, the waitress asked us to pause so that she could tell us that the woman had just donated $100 toward the students’ food bill.
When the students learned of her generosity, all 14 of them verbally expressed their gratitude and embraced the woman in a genuine hug.
It was a truly amazing feeling to see the heartfelt appreciation between the woman and those kids.
To all the parents of those children, Mrs. Wirth and the kids themselves, we want to say how proud we are of all of you. You are a terrific group of kids and we are honored to be a part of the Choir Boosters.
