Summary – 2019 Caroling
We spread loads of Christmas cheer and song with about two dozen of us participating. We sang for almost 20 minutes to the full dining room at New England Club and then split into two groups to maximize the joy being spread – singing to groups at Mt. Washington Care Center, The Ashford plus several area member households. Afterwards many enjoyed fellowship, pizza and cookie eating.
From our recipients we received positive feedback at the time in the form of smiles, singing along and applause plus notes later including these comments:
- “we would like to thank you for organizing the Saturday evening of caroling: we thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship.”
- “Thanks to you and the carolers for the gift of beautiful music and an everlasting memory. It was wonderful!!! We were especially happy – – and proud – – to share your thoughtfulness with our son and his family (members of another denomination). On, on MWPC!!”

SAVOR THE SEASON: Christmas Caroling on Saturday, ___________
The Joyful Noise Carolers will assemble for our annual time together. Anyone from the MWPC community is welcome to join us – no previous singing experience necessary. We will meet inside The New England Club (8135 Beechmont, 45255) around 5 PM. After quickly organizing recipient cookie plates** and signing cards, we will sing for the NEC residents at dinner. After that we’ll go sing at several other locations including MWPC member homes. Around 7 PM we will be done and those interested head out for pizza and more fellowship at a local establishment. If you have questions, call or email Steve Long.
** NOTE: No pressure, but if you’d like, bring along one or two dozen cookies for the plates we’ll provide for each household where we sing

Another fabulous year of singing to many folks happened in 2017 with 24 or more of us in attendance. We sang for almost 20 minutes to the full dining room at New England Club and then split into two groups to maximize the joy being spread. Among other locations was one of the Forest Hills Care Center lobbies plus several households in the Mt. Washington and Anderson Township areas. Afterwards we had the largest percentage of carolers ever stick around for some pizza and cookie eating plus time for good fellowship! Here’s one picture of that gang
During joys and concerns time at NEC worship the following Sunday there was a joy expressed that our group had been there to sing. In fact, one of the women at worship said that it was the finest Christmas singing they had there this season. Not that we do this for such comments but it’s nice to know there are many who appreciate the efforts!

This event was begun in 1998 by the FATHERS Team (men’s group,) their families, plus Chapel Folk members. For the past several years we have started by meeting at New England Club and singing for the residents at 5 p.m.. Then we’re off to a few other Anderson Twp./Mt. Washington/Union Twp. locations, including some individuals’ homes. We are ordinarily done singing by 7 p.m., at which time we head out for pizza at a local establishment afterwards. If you have questions call Steve Long.
