Councilwoman Sexton Smith Seeks Holiday Voices For The Christmas Caroling Event On Friday

Sometimes the best way to spread holiday cheer is to take a step back into the past when carolers walked the streets bringing the sounds of the season to young and old alike as the community’s way of celebrating the holiday.

Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith (D-4) is encouraging everyone who would like to spread holiday cheer to come out for the Christmas Caroling Event set for this Friday December 15th.

“This event is a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season and I know there are folks out there looking for a great opportunity to sing their way through the season,” says Sexton Smith.

The Christmas Caroling Event is sponsored by St. Peter’s United Church of Christ and will begin at 6:00pm.

Here is the route of the carolers:

  • Starting at St. Peter’s United Church of Christ at Russell Plaza at 1407 W. Jefferson St.
  • Walk to 11th St. down to Baxter Community Center
  • Continue down 11th St. to Christian Heath Center West on 1015 Magazine St.
  • Walk back to 11th and Muhammad Ali
  • Go west on Muhammad Ali stopping along the way to carol
  • Go to Russell Apartments on 18th and Muhammad Ali
  • Go south on 18th St. to Chestnut stopping along the way to carol
  • Go east on Chestnut to 15th St. stopping along the way to carol
  • Go north on 15th St. cross Muhammad Ali to Joshua Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church 426 South 15th St.

“This a great time for all of us to gather together and celebrate peace in our neighborhoods and all across our great city,” says Sexton Smith. “Come join us!”
