Caroline Illuminated &
Songs From the Heart Events
Tuesday, December 21, 2021
All are welcome!
12/21/21 - evening
Join Caroline residents this year in what will hopefully become an annual event: set out luminaries on winter Solstice evening, Tuesday December 21st!
A luminarie can be as simple as an LED tea light in a paper bag. Or you can put a regular candle on some sand in a glass jar and put the jar inside a bag. Or use paper cups or empty tin cans (and punch holes in them if you wish). Or fill a balloon with water (you could add food coloring to the water), put it in the freezer, then cut away the balloon and chisel a divet for an LED tea light. Let your imagination and creativity run wild… then, take a tour around Caroline to see what other families have done. A list of participating families will be posted here soon (if people notify us they plan to participate.)
Hearts Lifted in Song!
12/21/21 @ 7 pm
On the Solstice, you are warmly welcome at the Brooktondale Community Center outdoor pavilion area for community singing, co-hosted by the Caroline Valley Community Church (CVCC)! Other churches are also welcome to help co-organize!
Songs will include traditional Christmas carols as well as secular winter songs (like Frosty the Snowman). CVCC song leader Karen Barden will lead much of the singing. If you have a favorite song you’d like the group to sing, send it ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org who will pass it along to Karen.
RSVP here if you wish to get updates and info and music/lyrics:
Don’t forget to dress warmly as everything will be outdoors! However, there will be a fire pit, and hot cider, and you are invited to bring baked goods to share, to help keep us warm and in the holiday spirit. (Please pack any snacks as individual servings – although the local girl scout troop is attending and can help to put things in baggies.)
