Christmas season events planned in Woonsocket

The season of Advent will soon be here, and several annual events will be occurring in Woonsocket.
Starting off the celebration is the annual Christmas Concert, “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 5 p.m. at the Woonsocket Community Center. This inspiring concert will be performed by the Community Choir. There is no charge for the concert, but everyone is urged to bring non-perishable items for the Sanborn County Food Pantry. Following the concert will be a community potluck meal. All are invited.
The Community Choir will also be at Prairie View Healthcare Community at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 20, to share their music with the residents and community members.
Once again, the Sanborn County Courthouse is hosting “The Parade of Trees.” County residents, organizations and businesses are invited to bring an artificial tree (no lights) to the Courthouse and decorate it in their own style. There is no particular theme; just use good taste. Again this year, the public is asked to vote for their favorite tree. The sponsor of the honored tree will receive a small token of appreciation and an award.
The Courthouse employees ask that you let them know of your intentions to bring a tree by Nov. 22, so they can make a plan to accommodate everyone. Call Lynn Brueske (796-4516) or Diane Larson (796-4513) to let them know or if you have any questions. The trees should be in place between Nov. 27 and Dec. 14, and remain until after the New Year, removed by Jan. 5, if possible. The trees can be viewed any day the Courthouse is open (weekdays 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
There will be an open house at the Courthouse on Friday, Dec. 15, from 1-4:30 p.m., with the Courthouse employees serving coffee, cookies, bars and cider. The Community Choir is coming that day to share a few of their songs from the Christmas Cantata at 3 p.m. Santa will also be present at the Courthouse that day from 3-4:30 p.m. For fun, there will be a scavenger hunt with some county trivia.
County residents are also urged to decorate their homes and businesses with lights, signs, etc., to brighten the season.
