Last night, the Town’s Neighborhood Watch group sponsored a Christmas Caroling. We hope this will be an annual event that includes people of all religious backgrounds and denominations. The clergy and congregations of the 3 largest churches in town were all invited to join us as well as any other members of the community. This was not a specific church sponsored event, and indeed had representatives of many different groups participating.
The coordinator for this event was Scott Mears. The Onley Baptist Church offered us the use of their bus, a real blessing considering the cold temperatures and breezy conditions. The Onley Police Department gave us an escort. AT least we hoped that with a police escort we would not get arrested for disturbing the Peace!
After a freezing hour and a half, the group returned to the Onley Fire Hall to warm up with hot chocolate and cookies (courtesy of the Eastern Shore Buddhist Sangha) and fresh made cannolis donated by the Sage Restaurant.
Hopefully next year we will have a much larger turnout of singers and all the town’s churches will be represented, and hopefully it will be a bit warmer!
