The Description of Lincolnshire Branch
The Lincolnshire Branch of the Alliance of Youth Leaders in the United States aims to serve the community. Through a variety of volunteering projects, such as helping the needy and improving our living environment, we strive to build a place that is not only a community in name, but also in spirit. By joining our branch and participating in this great learning experience, members can build character, nurture caring and empathy in us, and develop leadership skills, while forging new friendships. We encourage all members to think creatively and do the best they can to promote volunteering in the community. Anyone is welcome to join, and together, let’s create a better, healthier, and happier place to live!

December 18, 2015:
Members of the Lincolnshire AYLUS branch hosted a holiday concert at Sunrise, a senior living center, in order to spread the holiday spirit. We invited friends to come and perform with us, because as the saying goes, the more the merrier! We ended up with many talented kids (over 20), ranging from the ages of 9 through 16, who played a variety of instruments, including the violin, cello, viola, flute, and piano.
The concert itself was a great success–the room was filled with seniors who clapped or hummed happily along with the holiday music that the kids performed by themselves, in duets, trios, or quartets. At the end of the concert, everyone – including kids, parents, and seniors – came together to sing Silent Night. Afterwards, we chatted with the seniors and handed out chocolates and candy canes.
Overall, this concert brought family and friends together and brought something special and different into the seniors’ lives, which we hoped had made them happy and excited for this holiday season. We thank everyone who helped make this event possible and wish everyone happy holidays!
