December 12, 2011:
Blue Pencil Institute president Dr. Laura Hills once again played an evening of holiday music at the Rotary Club of Fairfax’s holiday party for homeless children. The annual event supports the families served by FACETS, a well-established non-profit organization in Northern Virginia that helps people meet their emergency shelter, food, and medical needs. FACETS is committed to help those in need of safe and affordable housing. The honored guests at the holiday party were families with children that are temporarily housed in motels in the City of Fairfax, Virginia.
Dr. Hills played a selection of holiday tunes non-stop through the dinner and accompanied the singing of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Jingle Bells. No stranger to playing for such occasions, Dr. Hills has been the music specialist at The Gardens at Fair Oaks and Fairfax Nursing Center since 1998. According to Dr. Hills, “My music is one of my greatest joys. I’m so glad that I can share it with others. What a pleasure it is for me to see the children at our holiday party enjoying the music I’m playing for them!”
