Seasonal sing-along set for Vallican Whole

There’s nothing like getting together with your friends and neighbours and singing your heart out.

There’s nothing like getting together with your friends and neighbours and singing your heart out.

This Sunday (December 23) at 3 p.m., everyone is invited to come to the Vallican Whole Community Centre and do just that.

The newly formed Vallican Whole Choir is hosting a seasonal sing-along featuring tunes we have all known and loved ever since we could first warble in our cribs.

There will be mulled cider to drink, you are encouraged to bring cookies and other goodies, and admission is by donation. Any money raised beyond expenses will go to the Slocan Food Bank.

Weather permitting, the choir and anyone else who is so inspired will go about the neighbourhood at the end of the event and serenade a few lucky neighbours.

While we sometimes get tired of canned carols everywhere we go, singing our festive favourites together is something very different, helping us to take back the season and remember why this is a special time of year.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t sing, there will be enough boisterous voices to carry you along so you can enjoy the camaraderie and celebrate winter and all it means to us here in these northern climes.

So come out to the Vallican Whole — located at 3762 Little Slocan River Road — raise your voice in cheerful melody and just take joy in being part of the community we all love.
