Spring May Be a No Show, But "When Swing Was King" is Still Springing Forward!

Yes, spring may have lost its way but that won’t keep us from swinging into April with the newest edition of “When Swing Was King,” the extremely popular program that Vital Signs Ministries brings to 11 senior care facilities each month. “When Swing Was King” is a delightful journey back in time with original hits from the big band era, a visual smorgasbord of the same era featuring hundreds of photographs, a fun and interesting narration, and the opportunity for sharing memories and conversation with friends.

It’s no wonder that we’re told over and over that “When Swing Was King” is the residents’ favorite program of each month. How cool!

Why don’t you come along and see what all the hoopla is about? The schedule for each month is always posted on the Vital Signs Ministries website.

And this month’s lineup? It’s a real doozy!
