TCSD Annual Christmas Caroling evening with Craig Zelent
Dec 15, 2019 @ 3:45 pm - 6:45 pm PST
Hey TCSD – please rsvp to Craig Zelent by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m getting a group of volunteers (hopefully 25+) to sing Christmas carols at some assisted living homes in the Solana Beach/Carlsbad area on Sunday afternoon December 15th from 3:45-6:45pm.
Please respond via email if you can join us and tell me how many people you can bring. Admittedly I’m a horrible singer, but I can make a loud noise so that’s a good thing. A bad voice is not a valid excuse – many of these wonderful people have hearing challenges anyway. You can always record your NFL game and watch it later so that also is not a valid excuse. I have included our route below so feel free to join us for any single location or ideally all 4 locations. I have had the privilege of doing this the last 18 years with the Tri Club and it is always a great experience. Most of the residents know the words and join us in song. This is your chance to make some people very happy during the Holiday Season.
I will bring songbooks. Please wear Christmas colors (antlers and red noses score extra points) and feel free to bring any family or friends. You’ll be my hero for life if you are comfortable being our song leader (ie, get us started on close to the right note). Even if you can only attend 1 of the performances, please join us – the more the merrier! We will meet at 3:45pm in the church parking lot next to Atria Encinitas to practice a bit and make a grand entrance singing Jingle Bells. Please be on time because we will stay on our schedule. I have selected these times to coincide with dinner at each place in hopes of having big audiences.
We are going to add a new song (“I Have a Little Dreidel”) this year to honor our friends that celebrate Hanukkah. This song is probably new to most of us so please click on this link learn the tune. You don’t have to memorize anything. I will have the words to all our songs.
