Tiger Chorale brings joyful sounds to Clay Center Presbyterian Manor

Some residents chose to watch the festivities from indoors, all socially distanced for safety.

Our residents love visits from the talented young people in our community, but those visits have been curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

When Clay County Community High School’s Tiger Chorale received approval to perform at our community, the residents were beyond thrilled. The concert was held outside, with cooperating weather conditions that made the day perfect for a performance from talented youth in the Clay Center community.

Residents enjoyed the performance from the patio on the west side of the building where they had room to social distance and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Adding to the fun and excitement was the fact that the Tiger Chorale is led by Kara Bergston, whose grandparents Cecil and Evelyne Keen are new residents at Presbyterian Manor. Equally exciting, one of the performers, Ella Girton, is the great-granddaughter of another resident, Donna Girton. Donna worked with Clay Center High School and the Tiger Chorale to help orchestrate the performance.
