Gering, NE: My Sweet, Sweet Valentine!

Violet and Amos Harris were surprised by family members on Valentine’s Day. Just before dinner the loving couple was serenaded by the “Sugar Valley Singers”, a local quartet that provided singing valentines on Valentine’s Day.

The Sugar Valley Singers have brought joy to western Nebraska and eastern Wyoming for 45 years with their barbershop chorus style. The last 40 years, around Valentine’s Day, the group has been singing valentines as a fund raising project. Their biggest fundraising goal is to contribute to the youth festival and getting young men to sing. Additional funds earned go toward chapter expenses as well as the Barbershop Harmony Society.

It was heartwarming to see the love expressed by this couple as they listened to the group “sing” their Valentine. It was an event all residents and staff on the neighborhood enjoyed as it sparked memories of previous Valentine’s Days in their lives.

Quality Life:  We will create a living environment that radiates love, peace, spiritual contentment, dignity and safety, while encouraging personal independence.
