Friendly and helpful John Knox Village residents quickly and creatively responded to COVID-19 by supporting fellow residents coping with the crisis.

In May, a few talented musicians performed a short concert and sing-along on the street at Florabunda Circle, which evolved into a weekly gathering.

Residents gather along Florabunda Circle for a socially spaced weekly concert.

This was music to our ears (pun intended).The performers,
Bonnie Biedermann (violin),
Rich Lewis (brass), Kay Horton (wind) and Ray Horton (brass) turned in a rousing patriotic performance greeted by happy applause from everyone.

Even with “social distancing” it was a great chance to greet our friends and strengthen our good relationships.
