 Iain MacGillivray provided music and song

Iain MacGillivray, who graduates this year from The College of St. Scholastica, played music and several songs on different instruments, all native to Scotland, his homeland.  For the fourth year in a row he led the volunteers from the Chapel to the Dining Room playing his bagpipe, always a thrill.

 Build your house upon a rock!

Several Sisters provided the entertainment with their singing of “Sandyland,” a song about building your house upon a rock.  The Sisters wore hard hats and work belts and carried hand tools such as shovels, saws, levels, and hammers, and they were a big hit.  Sister Lois closed the program with a thank you to Sister Mary Rae Higgins, Director of Volunteers, for planning the event.
