Kids organize caroling

A group of local children spread a little holiday joy this month as they sang holiday melodies to village residents.

Over 30 carolers boarded a trailer and were paraded through town to sing holiday favorites to local residents, including tenants at Skenesborough Harbor Apartments.

“The songs were lovely and we really appreciated the children singing for us,” said Theresa Eagan, a resident of the apartments.

The event was organized by Theresa’s granddaughter, Riley Eagan, a junior at Whitehall High School.

The younger Eagan said she used to carol as a child and wanted to start the tradition anew.

So she found a venue, the Whitehall Rec. Center, convinced the Dudley’s to donate the use of a trailer, and even got Mr. and Mrs. Claus on board.

After the caroling, the children return to the Rec. Center where they had their photo taken with Santa and shared with him their wish lists.

They also played bingo and a few lucky kids won toys, including Phelony West, who walked away with a Vermont Teddy Bear donated by Stephanie Safka.

Although Christmas has come and gone, fun at the Rec. Center will continue through the holiday break.

The center will have extended hours, noon to 8 p.m., today through Saturday.

Events will include a holiday dance, bingo and a New Year’s pool tournament.

Stop by the Rec. Center for more information, including a full calendar of activities.
