Remembering Shirley Temple in East Northport

Celebrating the Life of Shirley Temple

Residents of The Bristal at East Northport remembered Shirley Temple Black, the beloved child star of Hollywood. We all learned the sad news of her passing at age 85.

Today, we geared our “Great Actor Series,” part of our February BBU program, toward the many films that Shirley Temple made as a child. Residents recalled how she danced and sang her way into their hearts when she was just 5 years old with the movie Bright Eyes.

Staff program directors led the residents through an interactive presentation. It featured video clips, and a group sing along at the end to Temple’s signature song, The Good Ship Lollipop –  complete with lollipops for all!

“What a beautiful program – thank you for bringing back so many sweet memories for me” said resident Marion Rosenberg. Below are a few photos from our memorial.
