One Wednesday evening each month, local ukulele enthu-siasts, old and young alike, gather to strum and sing along to “Let’s Talk Dirty in Hawaiian” and other popular numbers.
They do like music; they do love sing-a-longs, said Kathy A. Wenthe, director of activities at the Visiting Nurse Assisted Living Community on Lowell Street.
Wenthe said she was pleased when Julie Morse, organizer of the Boston Ukulele Society contacted her and requested the use of the facility to host the group’s monthly practice sessions. “We just happened to be the winners,” said Wenthe.
Initially, the group met in the café area of the Garage in Harvard Square, said Morse. But, with people traveling in and out and talking and shopping, the locale was less than ideal, she said.
Morse said a member of the group suggested they meet in the assisted living community and she then contacted Wenthe. “This was really lucky. It’s just been really great,” said Morse.
