The music notes B, A and G were repeated over and over in the classroom Tuesday morning as students at Kalmiopsis Elementary School recited, sang and played the first three notes of “Hot Cross Buns.”

The students were participating in “classroom music” with John Webster, a retired music teacher.

Webster volunteers in the fourth-grade classrooms from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. every Tuesday. And, thanks to the Stagelights Musical Arts Community nonprofit organization, he is teaching the students how to play the recorder.

Victims of Alzheimer’s disease, which affects more than 5 million Americans and millions more who have been diagnosed with other forms of dementia, were remembered Sunday night during a candlelight vigil at Ocean Park, a residential care facility in Brookings.

The event was in conjunction with the National Commemorative Candle Lighting, an annual event sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. 

The candle lighting is held every November in recognition of National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. Local organizations, such as Ocean Park, hold ceremonies in their communities on the same day, uniting individuals from coast to coast, said Dana Maciel, a registered nurse and wellness director at Ocean Park, a residential care facility in Brookings for persons with Alzheimer’s and other dementia.
