“Belles and Beaus” Bell Choir Spreads Holiday Cheer


Belles and Beaus Bell Choir - Middlewoods of Farmington(Farmington, CT – December 10th) - Christmas bells are ringing at Middlewoods of Farmington Independent and Assisted Living Community as members of the “Belles and Beaus” bell choir practice for their annual holiday tour! The group, which gathers throughout the year for the hand bell program, takes to the road during the holiday season to perform for local residents. After a performance at the Middlewoods of Farmington annual holiday family gathering last weekend, the “Belles and Beaus” put on a lively show at Arden Courts of Farmington on Wednesday, December 9th. In between songs, the group offered witty remarks and a bit of entertainment, along with encouragement to the audience to sing along. Many thanks to Arden Courts for the warm welcome and holiday goodies!

Additional performances are also scheduled at three other assisted living communities later this month: Middlewoods of Newington (Newington, CT), Lifestyle Transitions at Wesley Heights, and Crosby Commons (both in Shelton, CT). To learn more about the choir or to schedule a performance, contact Middlewoods of Farmington at 860.284.5700. Middlewoods of Farmington offers award-winning assisted and independent living options and is affiliated with the UConn Health Center. The community is located at 509 Middle Road in Farmington and is owned and operated by United Methodist Homes, a local, mission-based, not-for-profit organization based in Shelton, CT.
