SUN CITY CENTER
Sun City Center Sing-Along
The February Greater Sun City Center Sing-Along drew a near-packed house to hear local musicians in addition to the usual singing of favorite songs. Performances were given by the Trinity Baptist Church Choir and Quartet under the direction of Janet Gratz. Pianist and vocalist Doris Wider performed If I Could Help Somebody and Wind Beneath My Wings. Miss Widner, blind since birth, came to the area recently from St. Louis, where she performed on both radio and TV. While visiting Denise and Dale Jergensen here, she fell and broke her leg and went to Sun Terrace Care Center to recuperate. According to Charlie Harbin of the Sun City Center Men's Chorus, Miss Wider "is an inspiration to all of us and showed us an example of courage, spirit and talent that we all must admire."
