This year, SNA will celebrate the rich diversity of the neighborhood as well as help to diminish hunger in our midst by sponsoring Caroling For a Cause.
Summit residents and friends are invited to gather in Miriam Hospital’s cafeteria at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 13, which falls during the Jewish observance of Hannukkah. There will be hot chocolate and cookies plus a short presentation on the meaning of the Festival of Lights. Then the group will sing a couple of non-sectarian pieces before heading into the neighborhood for traditional Christmas carols.
Along the way, the carolers will solicit donations of peanut butter or cash to benefit the St. Raymond’s Church food pantry. The evening will end about 6 p.m. in the parking lot of Seven Stars bakery on Hope Street in time for dinner at one of the multitude of local restaurants and still allow for homework completion before school on Monday.
Please bring your enthusiasm for the holidays and your flashlights to read the provided songbooks. Remember to dress for the weather and most of all – have fun!
