Caroline Illuminated &
Songs From the Heart Events

Tuesday, December 21, 2021
All are welcome!

Caroline Illuminated! 

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 emilyfinnadams@gmail.com 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.)
