Rockland Public Library to host winter sing along Dec. 20
ROCKLAND — The public is invited to join song-leader Carney Doucette and accompanist Sojourner Hodges-Crowley in the Rockland Public Library's Reading Room on Thursday, December 20 at 6:30 p.m. for a not-so-traditional evening of singing during the holiday season.
Join us as we open our hearts and share peace, hope, joy and magic through song. The sing-along will include solstice & winter songs, along with some traditional hymns and modern Christmas songs. Not a singer? Please come to simply enjoy an evening of community while listening to new and favorite holiday music. Lyric sheets will be provided. This program is free and open to the public and participants of all ages. Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union St. For more information, call (207) 594-0310.
