At a recent “Reroute” meeting at Schoolcraft’s Village Hall, people talked about ways to build a sense of community. Debbie Dehart mentioned to her small group that singing Christmas Carols in Burch Park in Schoolcraft would be one way. The idea took off.
Darby Fetzer called her the next day and after several conversations with the Schoolcraft Community Library staff and the Schoolcraft Village, they have put together a novel program of singing Christmas Carols in the Park.
Tuesday, December 20th at 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. anybody who likes to sing will meet at the gazebo in Burch Park to sing Christmas Carols in the Park. In case of inclement weather, the meeting will be on Thursday, December 22 at 6:30 p.m.
Everyone is invited, even if you’re not a resident of Schoolcraft. Please dress for the weather and bring a flashlight to read the printed carols. To bring the gift of the season full circle, a donation to Schoolcraft’s Food Pantry of an unexpired canned good is suggested. A collection box will be at the park, Fetzer said.
After singing, everyone is invited for hot chocolate and coffee until 8:30 p.m. at the Schoolcraft Community Library across from the Burch Park. If you have questions, please call Debbie Dehart 269-679-2723 or Darby Fetzer 269-569-5557.
