Start practicing your scales.
The 43rd annual Community Carol Sing is set for Tuesday, December 3 in Rising Sun's Center Square in front of town hall.
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, members of Cub Scout Pack 28 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 outdoor sing, participants move to Janes United Methodist Church, Walnut Street for cookies, coffee, and juice and visits with Santa.
For more information about this event call town hall at (410) 658-5353.
