Old fashioned Christmas sing for seniors in Maple Ridge

The sing-a-long will also include performances by chorals and choirs.

It is an opportunity for seniors to get out and enjoy community connections.

There will choral performances, carol singing and both preschool and senior choirs performing, as well as Christmas poems and readings.
