Students and staff at Beaver Island Community School, along with a number of parents and community members traveled about the Island on December 17 to bring the gift of music to many in the community.
Teacher Deb Robert organized the event and Mike Myers was the enthusiastic choir director. The kids had prepared seven carols, one that was accompanied by “signing.” All were decked out in holiday attire, with bright scarves and many a reindeer and Santa hat in the crowd. The children also made ornaments for the birds to hang in nearby trees.
Everyone visited by the carolers were very touched by the happy holiday music brought to their doorsteps.
Due to the very cold temperatures the Live Nativity had to be canceled. However, there will be a “Message at the Manger” this coming Sunday, Dec. 22 at 12:30. Join your neighbors to celebrate the birth of Christ in prayer and song at the manger site.
