Voices ring in Christmas time at carol service


The sounds of Christmas rang out to an appreciative full house at the Picton United Church during the annual Community Carol Service.

The carols ‘O Come All ye Faithful’ and ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ opened the evening as guest artists entered the church. County author and storyteller Janet Kellough set the stage for each special performance and carol with scripture readings.

    I have loved this event since I was a child, singing in the choir. Now my own children sing in this choir, at this event. It’s a wonderful, County tradition.
