The Human Services Club at Herkimer College performed a holiday concert for the residents of The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing Home at Mohawk Valley in Ilion on Wednesday, December 12th. Included in the concert were performances by students Matthew Aceto of Deerfield and Julia Grippe of Sauquoit, majoring in Music Industry at Herkimer College. Club members presented residents with bells and ornaments which they adorned with special quotes. Club advisor Grace Ashline said, "It was pretty impactful and powerful. Julia and Matt sang beautifully. The jingle bells with quotes and donated ornaments brought residents and staff to tears. It was pretty humbling and an event I am very proud of the Human Services club for identifying, coordinating and pulling off."
