Presented by Companions & Homemakers, iHeartMedia, The Farmington Community & Recreation Services and The Music Department of Farmington High School.
Farmington Community Services sponsors several inter-generational programs for the community. Through this endeavor, we are proud to support Farmington High School’s special dinner concert each spring for local seniors, featuring performances by the very talented FHS Music Department. It is a wonderful opportunity to bring two generations together with a common love of music.
While activities have gone virtual in the past months due to COVID-19, many seniors have been left uninvolved without access to livestreaming sites and social media. Social isolation is one of the biggest threats to the health of seniors and has become amplified by the pandemic. Farmington Community Services would like to partner with iHeartRadio to offer seniors a familiar connection through a special show on June 14th called “Seniors for Seniors,” showcasing “songs of hope” recorded by FHS students from the class of 2020.
This show will be dedicated to all Farmington Valley seniors and anyone feeling the burden of loneliness through this trying time. It will be promoted via social media as well as mailings to more than 1,500 residents.
Throughout the pandemic, Farmington Community Services staff have been working diligently to help residents facing hardship, as well as developing creative solutions and supportive programs to meet the need of our community and most vulnerable populations.
