Received this from a reader: "An open invitation to join your neighbors for Community Christmas Caroling on Friday December 21st.
All who are interested (regardless of age, experience or vocal acuity) will gather in the candle-lit Pratt-Clinton Hill Community Garden (at Dekalb Ave. and Hall Street) at 6:30 pm. After warming up over hot chocolate and cookies, we head off at 7pm, ringing and singing our way through the streets of the Hill.
2007 marks the 41st year for this annual gathering. This year we are reviving a custom of years past and asking carollers to bring a food treat for the garden's birds (i.e. seed, dry corn, suet cakes)
Songbooks of traditional carols are provided for his eccentric evening coordinated by Marge Othrow and Charlie Bayrer."
Apparently this is a pretty hard-core group. Last year they sang in driving rain! Sadly, I am departing Friday morning for tropical Buffalo, but hopefully some of you can join in on the fun.
