Since October 2012, the residents at the Robynwood Assisted Living Center in Oneonta have had a weekly intergenerational class. The class has become a model that West-Finkle hopes to expand to other nursing homes and assisted living centers in the area in 2014. Some of the targeted locations for future programming include Stamford, Grand Gorge, Roxbury, Margaretville and Delhi, according to a news release.
The crowd-funding campaign ends Oct. 28. For more information on the Community Music and Arts Network, contact West-Finkle at 607-652-2330 or 607-441-8448, or by email at FunMusic4Kids@aol.com. The website is www.communitymusicnetwork.com.
