Perfect night for holiday cheer
The church continued one of its favorite Christmas traditions on Sunday, traveling in a caravan of cars throughout Cape Elizabeth to individual homes and, in the end, to the Cape Memory Care Center for an evening of Christmas caroling.
As if the singing itself wasn’t enough to capture the warmth of the Christmas season, a light snow fell thoughout the night, truly making spirits bright.
Members of the church were joined by some girls from Julie Lefebvre’s Girl Scout troop to make the caroling festive and intergenerational. The surprise visits to homes and the Memory Care Center were rewarded by appreciative smiles and a rekindling of favorite carols from earlier in resident’s lives.
At most stops, carolers stood outside by front doors and porches, singing three to four carols before moving on to the next home. At one home, they crowded — 16 total — inside to serendade its resident in the warmth of her living room.
To make the evening even more memorable, one of the scouts accented each home visit with a “snow angel” and a hand-written “Merry Christmas” in the fresh snow.
The evening ended back at the church with the warmth of fellowship and the pleasure of eating pizza and a big whoppie pie for supper. Merry Christmas!
