Join Us on Sunday for a Free Concert — and More

On Sunday we will continue celebrating our 65th anniversary with a free, public concert by The Rhythm Project at 2 p.m. in the Atrium at St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children. The acclaimed world percussion youth ensemble is the primary community program of the Virginia Arts Festival. The group also performed at the Home in April 2009 (see photo).

After the concert, we will dedicate a number of recent additions to the Home, including a koi pond, library and our signature mermaid statue, “Embrace.” Enjoy refreshments throughout the day, and be sure to also check out the display of antique cars  by members of The Cape Henry Antique Automobile Club.

To RSVP or for more information, call 757.622.2208.

A Bit of the Virginia Arts Festival at SMHDC

It was a busy weekend at St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children. On Saturday, CEO William C. Giermak led the ninth Family Forum, which was followed by a tropical-themed Family Night program put on by the Recreational Therapy Department. 

On Sunday afternoon, our Atrium was filled with the joyous sounds of steel drum music. The Rhythm Project All Stars performed a free public concert sponsored by Claire and David Benjack and the Auxiliary Board of St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children. The group is the premier performing ensemble of The Rhythm Project world percussion and dance ensemble founded by The Virginia Arts Festival.
