 A Caroling We Will Go
December 6, 2014, Heather Pointe Community residents went caroling.  Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, Jingle Bells, We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town were favorites to sing. The brisk December air made warm hot chocolate with marshmallows a welcomed treat afterward.

Anyone who wanted to join the throng was invited. Carolers picked up several young people along the route who lent their voices to spirited singing and fun.


Many thanks to Regina Swartz for allowing her decorative front yard to be used for the festive photos below.
