The Merrymakers Association, founded in 1986, is a nonprofit dedicated to live music and serving senior citizens. We provide monthly professional musical entertainment to seniors, at no cost to them. Our entertainers travel across Nebraska and in western and central Iowa and visit nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior centers, veterans homes and even hospice care. Our mission is: Merrymakers improves the quality of life for seniors by encouraging active participation, increasing social interaction, and sparking memories through professional musical entertainment.
We have a fundraiser in the summer, Songs and Suds where we invite under 30s to attend for $30. Standard tickets are $75. It includes food and drinks and karaoke featuring Merrymakers entertainers. See more information about this event on our website under Support>Fundraisers.
We invite members of the community to become active in our guild, the Friends Group. Members can join for a donation of $25 and up. Friends group members receive our newsletter, notifications of events and volunteer opportunities.
