Get your pipes warmed up.
The 45th annual Community Carol Sing is set for Tuesday, December 1, at 7 p.m., at Janes United Methodist Church, Walnut Street.
The Carol Sing is a rich tradition in town. Song sheets will be distributed and Tom Connelly will lead. There are typically soloists, and members of the Rising Sun High band often turn out to provide instrument accompaniment.
During the singing, area Cub Scouts collect non-perishable food items. These items are then donated to Ray of Hope Mission.
The highlight of the night is the arrival of Santa.
Instead of turning out with reindeer and sleigh, St. Nick comes in a Rising Sun Police cruiser.
After the sing, participants enjoy cookies, coffee, and juice and visits with Santa.
