HELENA – Folks living at Hunter’s Pointe Senior Living retirement community received a special serenade for Valentine’s Day.

Hunter’s Pointe was decorated with red colored heart-shaped balloons, colorful glitter heart table centerpieces, and hanging-signs spelling ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’.

The Last Chancers Barbershop Chorus sang for the residents, mixing modern songs with old barbershop tunes from the 1880’s.

The Last Chancers have been singing to the community since 1972.

“Its a lot of fun, I mean that’s why do what we do. If we just sang at a rehearsal hall the time, it wouldn’t be a lot of fun, but we enjoy coming out around town. We try to pick a set of songs that will relate to the age group that we’re singing to,” said Roger Morton, President of the Last Chancers Barber Shop.

“Well, it’s always a great feeling to share music with other people, and if it brightens up these peoples day it’s all the better,” said Eston Falley, member of the chorus.

The chorus is made up of 10 men.

After the singing was done, roses were handed out; and of course, the ladies received their rose first.

“It’s a good audience, they listen and we enjoy it,” said singer Jim Penner.

“I could talk a long time about this, it’s a fun hobby. Guys, come out and join us, it’s a lot of fun!” encouraged Morton.

Morton said he is proud to be part of the chorus.

The Chorus is a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a worldwide organization founded in 1938 to promote and preserve barbershop music as an art form.
