The Vallican Whole Community Choir will lead a night of caroling on Sunday

Seasonal sing-along returns to Vallican

On Sunday, December 22 at 3pm joing the Vallican Whole Community Choir for their second annual seasonal sing-along.

You probably started singing “Jingle Bells” before you could even walk — and then there are all those other seasonal ditties you’ve known all your life.

Here’s your chance to belt them out in the company of your neighbours and friends. On Sunday, December 22 at 3pm, come to the Vallican Whole Community Centre and join with the Vallican Whole Community Choir for its second annual seasonal sing-along.

Don’t worry, there will be enough robust singers that even if you can barely carry a tune, you can still join in with gusto and be swept along in complete and joyful harmony.

Who knows, maybe you’ll have such a good time you’ll want to join up and become part of this ever-growing ensemble.

“Last year’s gathering was so much fun there was never any question this had to be an annual event,” said Val Mayes, choir co-ordinator. “About 50 people gathered in a big circle, singing and laughing and chatting and eating and drinking and just plain celebrating the joys of getting together in a warm and welcoming hall in this oh-so-chilly season.”

Everyone is encouraged to bring a tasty little snack to share, if you can.

Hot mulled cider will be provided by the choir. Donations will be gratefully accepted at the door and any money raised will be divided between the Slocan Food Bank and the choir, for ongoing expenses.

The Vallican Whole is located at 3762 Little Slocan River Road. For information call 250-226-7399.
