It has been one year since we first saw the Phoinix Players perform in Christmas Parade in Junction City, Oregon. Since that time many friendships have been made and performances, rehearsals, and surprise engagements have been photographed. I (Russell) would have to say that what impresses me most about this group is their willingness to work hard no matter the circumstances and their ability to work together. The Phoinix Players have been without a place to call home for about 5 months now. That is a different story and good things are in motion! 😀 Regardless I watched this group come together to practice for this performance in cramped classrooms and living room floors. It didn’t matter the circumstances. They worked together to put together a small and wonderful show for the residents of Valley West Health Care Center. Seeing the residents eagerly wait outside the dining hall for the performance. It probably was a highlight of the month or maybe even the year for the residents. It really moved me. My friends really are amazing!
