Tickets will not need to be purchased for either the 9:00 or 10:30 am seating. We will be requesting donations on the dayof Luica.
Inviting all Lucia Singers for one practice: Wednesday, December 6 at 7:30pm. New attendees to Bethlehem are encouraged to join in our Lucia Singers Choir. You are requested to be available all morning on Saturday, as we sing at each seating.
It is lots of fun, and you do not need to know any Swedish to sing. Any questions, call Elissa Cedarleaf-Dahl at 612.377.5955.
