#HumansOfCoopHousing: Keeping spirits high with a social distancing singalong

Published March 23, 2020

Fieldstone Co-op in Toronto has found a great way to maintain a sense of community and keep spirits high while practicing social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19.

They held a community singalong, with members taking part from a safe distance apart on their balconies and in the garden.

For their first sing-along, the members selected these songs:

  • “My Favourite Things”, from Sound of Music
  • “Hakuna Matata”, from The Lion King
  • “Supercalifragilisticexpidalidocious”, from Mary Poppins
  • “Bare Necessities”, from The Jungle Book
  • “Let it Go”, from Frozen

Co-op members of all ages (and their dogs!) took part.

Members are already looking forward to the next singalong and sending in their song requests.

Throughout 2020, our Humans of Co-op Housing series will feature individuals who are making their co-ops a better place or speaking up for the importance of co-op housing. Let us know at info@chfcanada.coop who you’d like to see featured.
