Carolers well received
A robust crowd of local residents gathered Sunday Dec. 16 to sing Christmas carols at various homes and other locations around town. Mark and Linda Perry organized the activity — and Kathy Spahn helped by compiling a list of people to visit.
About 24 carolers met at the Bolton Town Hall where a school bus, piloted by Craig Hannon, picked them up and took them “over the river and through the woods” around our beloved rural town, taking us to six residences, where the group’s remarkable harmony was well appreciated.
The group then was dropped off at the Town Hall and they proceeded to sing their way around the downtown area, visiting six more homes.
Linda Perry made Christmas cookies which were left at the homes. The efforts of all the carolers spread holiday cheer to a good number of our local residents.
