The bells were jingling. The tree was twinkling. The violins (and piano) were the perfect accompaniment. And we sang, and
laughed, and listened.
The Annual Community Carol Sing at the Church of St Paul in Barriere on Sunday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. was a resounding success.
Forty-six carolers came to sing and stayed to socialize over the delicious refreshments provided by the fine folks of the congregation.
Pastor Brian Krushel did a wonderful job of leading the gathering through some traditional carols as well as those much loved Christmas tunes about Santa Claus, Rudolph, Silver Bells, and tucked in the middle were a couple of poems read by Leslie Stirling.
Musicians were Bonnie Grusing, Brian Lee, Tim Whitehead, Josh Tremblay, Taylin Eustache and Glenn Andrews.
The Church of St Paul held a Christmas Eve service at 7 p.m. on Dec. 24.
