Sing-along ushers in Christmas season


The chapel at Mount Carmel Ministries near Alexandria was full of music lovers Sunday for the annual Messiah Sing-Along. The event was conducted by Brad Lambrecht (pictured). Kay Hoffland served as pianist, and soloists included Karen Gladen, soprano; Catherine Lucken, alto, Steven Deitz, tenor and Raymond Noble, bass. The Jefferson High School Rainbow Strings performed, joined by other community instrumentalists. Alex Artworks members held an art show in conjunction with the event. Attendees also donated food items or money for the Alexandria Jefferson High School Food Shelf. (Contributed)
