Scrapbook for Feb. 22

Elvis performs

Morning Pointe of Danville residents jaws dropped as “The King” himself set foot in the building, but only several decades younger. The seniors met Jonathan Taber, a.k.a. “Little Elvis,” from Wilmore, who enjoys performing the classics of the late musical legend. Tapping their toes and stomping their feet, the seniors were delighted to have the young doppelganger perform famous favorites to everyone’s enjoyment.

The senior living and memory care community invites performers from all genres and all ages to share their talents as part of Morning Pointe’s life enrichment program.

Jonathan Taber, a.k.a. "Little Elvis" from Wilmore, KY, visited with Janice Hacker, Morning Pointe of Danville resident.
