Byron Cook has always had an interest in people and music. In 2018, Byron moved from Moncton back to his hometown of Hillsborough and joined the residents of Fundy Royal Manor, a special care home for seniors.
Once settled, he realized there were not many afternoon activities for the residents so he set about sharing his collection of DVDs and music with his new neighbours.
Over the last year Byron and the residents received donations of CDs from local groups such as Betty Weston and family from New Horton and Carol Hawkes. Also, the Rocky Cape Jamboree performed at the home.
Byron was able to purchase local music from Frank’s Music and Spin-it Records and Videos in Moncton, but he would appreciate donations of DVDs of local artists, older country music performances, biblical movies or donations of money that can be used to buy additional materials. Donations can be dropped off at the front desk at Fundy Royal Manor (103 Academy St., Hillsborough, Attn: Sara, Enterainment Committee).
If you would like to arrange a performance, call (506) 734-2700.
