On Friday December 13, 2019, the Midlothian High School chapter of the Tri-M Honor Society visited two local nursing homes, Chesterfield Heights and Spring Arbor, after school to sing Christmas carols to the residents, continuing a tradition that Tri-M members participate in yearly.

The students began their afternoon of caroling at Chesterfield Heights, singing classic holiday tunes, such as Frosty the Snowman, O Holy Night, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. During the cheerful music, the residents and staff of Chesterfield Heights sang along and felt the spirit of Christmas immediately. Next, the Midlo carolers visited Spring Arbor Cottage, a retirement facility located in Salisbury. During their musical celebration, the residents faced the carolers, who gathered around the colorful Christmas tree; similarly to the event at Chesterfield Heights, the residents of Spring Arbor joined the carolers in multiple renditions of holiday favorites.

Senior Whitley Glidewell remarks that “it warms [her] heart to give Christmas joy to the residents.” The officers of Tri-M plan to continue this joyful service project for years to come.
