Every year, the Girl Scouts hold a traditional holiday sing-a-long every year. Part of the celebration is lighting up the Community House for the season in time for “Santa Day”. With that coming up early this year, that pushes the sing-a-long up to Friday, November 30th.

flyer for GS singalongThe Girl Scouts will celebrate on the Community House lawn from 6:30 -7:30 pm.

Families of all Girl Scouts in town are invited to join the free festivities. That includes singing seasonal favorites (Rudolf, Frosty, Jingle Bells, & the Dreidel song, etc). There will also be hot cocoa and treats to cap off the evening.

Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring unwrapped toys to donate to Project Just Because. Toys donated will be added to Southborough Firefighters’ collection for the charity. (You can see a list of requested gifts here.) 

The event takes place even in rain or snow (unless it’s unsafe to drive/be out).

Since my family joined the scouts, it seems to rain on this night, as often as not. Still, it hasn’t seemed to dampen the carolers’ spirits. So, if it does rain, just break out your umbrellas and boots, and head to the Community House for an evening of fun.

Thanks to Troop 89255 for sponsoring this year’s fun.
