Merrymakers’ own Michael Lyon is featured in the Omaha World-Herald today. Read his inspiring story here:
Hansen: 15 months ago, cancer almost claimed the voice of Omaha radio host Michael Lyon
Salvation Army Dora Bingel Center
On behalf of our Dora Bingrl Senior Center participants, I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity in blessing us with the gift of music! Recently we’ve had the pleasure of having Billy Troy here and John Worsham; they are top notch! But then again, all your entertainers are. Our hearts get so full with the blessing you provide, that it sometimes spills out of our eyes!!
Our folks love the variety, the engagement, the feel-good moments that your entertainers provide. This senior center has been here for 25 years, and I even have some 2nd generation participants who used to bring their mothers! These “kids” are now in their 70s!! They never tire of the special feelings they get when being sung to. God bless you for all you do in caring for our older adults in this community and across the state!

Who’s been here?
Our residents were talking about this great performance long after it was over. The second shift workers were asking me who had been
here because all their residents were telling them what a good show they had seen this afternoon. Thanks, for all the good work you and Merrymakers are doing to provide us with all the top notch performers!
Done it again!
Merrymakers has done it again! My Mom is now at St. Joe’s Villa and we try to make every Merrymakers.
Mr. Memories/Joe Taylor was a delight. My Mom sang along with every song. Again, Thank You So Much for what you do!
It truly warmed my heart to see Michael Lyon literally reach out to each and every resident. Perhaps unbeknownst to him he sang to the sweetest 103 year old woman I’ve ever met (she’ll be 104 next month!). He also gave his attention to a beautiful lady stricken with the crippling effects of a stroke. I know she felt like a princess for that moment!
No nap today
I didn’t want to take a nap today because I was afraid I would miss seeing Michael Lyon.
