Music with Larry! 

If you happen to be at Spencer Library in St. Peters on the last Tuesday of the month you might just hear clients singing to Elvis, the Beach Boys, and Sonny & Cher just to mention a few of the “oldies”! An idea, a retro record player on wheels and a collection of old 45’s began “Music With Larry” over 12 years ago.

“Larry” is Larry Buxton, a kind, gentle hearted man who began volunteering with Emmaus in 2004. “When I was in my twenties, I was a driver for United Cerebral Palsy,” he reflects. “That’s when people with disabilities truly found a place in my heart.” Since his volunteer orientation with Emmaus, Larry has volunteered at numerous parties, activities, making crafts, and taking weekend trips. Today, he remains true to the music program he started in 2006. “It’s not about me, it’s about the clients,” he says. “The clients love to dance and we’ve been doing this for so long, the clients know all of the words!”

Larry is really more than a volunteer, he is a real friend!
