Mountain Sky is more than just an outdoor concert venue in Jermyn – it’s a family, and they’ll prove that again with their first annual “Adopt the Nursing Home” Christmas Gathering.

Mountain Sky is adopting the Carbondale Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (10 Hart Place, Carbondale) this year, asking participants to pick one resident and help make the holiday special for them on Sunday, Dec. 21.

“There are so many programs out there today for the children, which is wonderful, but we’re aiming to do something special for some of our community’s older seniors who so often get forgotten during this time, especially since some have no family,” the group wrote on Facebook.

“There are 89 woman and 26 men in the nursing home, and with your help, we can bring a little joy to them all this holiday season.”

Open to public participation, the gathering on Dec. 21 will include visiting the residents, singing Christmas carols, and a cookie exchange. Mountain Sky welcomes ideas and contributions large or small, hoping to give personalized gifts to the residents if financially feasible, but “a warm smile and some friendly conversation would be a gift in itself.”
