Christmas Caroling - Sat., Dec. 7

All are welcome to participate in some Christmas caroling at The Oaks on Saturday, December 7 from 3:30-5:30pm, conveniently scheduled between showings of The Tempest. If you would like to participate, meet in the west parking lot near the fire pit. We will begin by singing songs together, then bless our neighbors with song on foot or upon a flatbed trailer, and reconvene at the school for more carols together. We will finish by enjoying the fire, snacks and warm drinks (hot dogs, cocoa and hot apple cider). Caroling books will be provided. RSVPs and a $2 donation are recommended, but most desired is your presence and your voice. Come One, Come All!
