Community Chorale To Perform At MASD

The Montrose Community Chorale will present a program of sacred and choral music on Sunday, December 6, at 3:00 p.m. at the Montrose Area High School auditorium. The chorale is directed by David Andre and accompanied on the organ by Richard VanAuken and on the piano by Evelyn VanAuken.

Mr. and Mrs. VanAuken will play an organ and piano duet prelude of Christmas carols. Mr. VanAuken will use many different organ embellishments when he plays “Sleigh Ride” and the “Parade of the Wooden Soldier,” a crowd pleaser of many years.

The chorale will sing several selections of Handel’s “Messiah.” “Gesu Bambino” by Pietro Yon will be sung by the chorale. On the lighter side, “A Jingle-Bell Travelogue” will be sung as the chorale visits several countries!

The Select Choir of Lathrop Street Elementary School will perform several numbers. Mr. Antonio Benicci of the Montrose Area School District directs this choir.

A free will offering will be accepted. Light refreshments will be served in the cafeteria following the program.

Kiwanis Club Toy Drive In Progress

The Christmas Season has always been a time for giving and sharing. One of the best ways to celebrate the spirit of the season is to share some of our blessings with the needy and less fortunate in our communities. There can be no better way to experience the joy of Christmas than to help a needy child enjoy the holiday with toys found under their Christmas tree.

The Kiwanis Club of Montrose Area wants to provide just such an opportunity to the people of Susquehanna County. For the past 29 years the Kiwanis Club has conducted their annual Christmas Toy Drive. Last year over 750 children were able to enjoy Christmas in a very special way because of the generosity of so many caring neighbors and organizations that contributed to the toy drive. Because of the critical economic environment that currently exists in both our country and our county, it is anticipated that the need will be even greater this year.

The Kiwanis club is asking for the public’s help and support again this year in this worthwhile service project. Donations of new toys and used toys in clean, reusable condition are requested. Cash donations are urgently solicited and gladly accepted so that we can purchase new toys in order to meet our goal of giving at least one or two new toys to each child. Please forward cash contributions to the Kiwanis Club of Montrose Area, P.O. Box 275, Montrose, PA, 18801.

Toys will be accepted from now until Saturday, December 12, and may be dropped off at the following locations: Tom Kerr’s Garage, Montrose, or Robinson’s Market, South Montrose. For additional information please contact the Montrose Kiwanis Club at 278-3537.

Distribution of toys will be coordinated by the Interfaith Christmas Bureau. Christmas toys and food baskets will be given out on Thursday, December 17, at the Montrose Bible Conference located on Lake Avenue.

The Kiwanis Club of Montrose Area invites everyone to participate in this annual service project. Please help make a Christmas dream come true for the needy children in our area.

Christmas Cantata At First Baptist

On Friday and Saturday, December 4 and 5 at 7:00 p.m., the choir and drama group of First Baptist Church, Susquehanna will be presenting the Christmas cantata and drama entitled "The Greatest Gift," written by Ron and Shelly Hamilton. Come hear the story of a little girl whose grandmother keeps reminding her that she needs to accept Jesus into her heart, but she keeps putting it off for "later." In the meantime, Christmas is coming and the little girl is looking for the "perfect gift" for her grandma. Will she be able to get enough money for the piece of jewelry she wants to buy? First Baptist invites you to bring the entire family and enjoy this presentation. First Baptist Church is located at 695 Jackson Avenue, Susquehanna.
