On November 7, Grade 1 students walked to Calvary Presbyterian Church on Fillmore Street to meet seniors in our nearby San Francisco community. The girls were given a tour of the church and chapel by Alison Faison (Director of Children and Family Ministries), before performing in front of seventy people who were gathered for Calvary’s Tuesday lunch program for adults over the age of 60.
Hamlin students sung “Inch by Inch” and “America the Beautiful,” led by music teacher, Kate Roseman. After singing, the girls distributed handmade cards, connecting with women and men in the audience.
One senior commented:
It was so refreshing to have you here. There is hope for the future. Please come back.
-Special thanks to Marion Stanton, (mother of former Hamlin students, Elizabeth ’98 and Anne ’00), for helping to facilitate this meaningful visit.
