VULCAN – Christmas concerts are a staple across Palliser, with proud family members bundling up on a cold winter’s night to make the trek to their child’s school.

More than 50 students from Grades 1 to 9 at Milo Community School recently took the show on the road, allowing  seniors  at  two facilities to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season.

The first stop was Vulcan Extendicare, with the whirlwind tour wrapping up at the Vulcan Community Health Centre.  Leading the students through Christmas carols was Palliser Regional Schools’ itinerant music teacher, Brian Rodgers, and intern Patrick Steeves, who accompanied them on the guitar and piano respectively.

Following the performance at both facilities the students shared handmade Christmas cards as well as home-baked goodies with the seniors during a brief visit.

Coalhurst Elementary School students shared their talents with a larger audience at Lethbridge City Hall, as part of the Sounds of the Season. A total of 16 students provided a free public performance over the noon hour in the atrium including the Grade 6 handbell choir, singers and piano players.

Following are some images from both visits.
