Talent abounded at Covenant Living of Golden Valley’s Annual Fun and Fine Arts event, where laughter, fun and music filled the air as residents shared their talents with fellow residents. Resident musicians beautifully sang and played instruments, which delighted the crowd. Former English teacher Dorothy Nichols shared the many uses of the word “Up” in the English language with a humorous twist. Roger Barrett brought together a costumed cast for Jack and the Beanstalk, complete with sound effects and background music by Carmen Sheppard. Roy Finden, former radio announcer, highlighted county and state fairs in a festive radio style (the Minnesota State Fair was, of course, his favorite).
