Maybe you’re looking for a new tradition or you are an empty nester or a widow. Maybe you just have a passion for singing, especially when it comes down to belting out holiday favorites.
Whatever your reason might be, you are warmly invited to join a group of dedicated merry makers for some community caroling.
For more years than she can count, members of Greenwood Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5864 have invited area residents to share their vocal cords for December fun, said Carol Bullock-Puckett, a 20-year VFW member and chaplain of the Ladies Auxiliary.
This year is no exception. With song books in hand, the group will visit area nursing homes as well as the homes of a couple of shut-ins. Carolers will meet at the post, 333 S. Washington St., at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13. A pizza party follows the singing at 8 p.m. Info: 317-714-7062.
“Singing is kind of my niche,” Bullock-Puckett said. “And I’ve also been known to wear my Santa hat when we go caroling.”
Filling a nursing home or a senior citizen’s living room with the sound of Christmas is important, she said. “And it’s important to give back to our veterans. That’s what we are all about.”
