Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year from the Sound Dunes
In keeping with the sentiments of the season, a number of the members of the Sound Dunes Swing Ensemble (SDSE) helped organize and participate in the Living Creche event in Dennis Village during mid-December. The evening started with a choral concert by the Dennis Union Church Choir, followed by a candlelight procession along Route 6A to the Dennis Village Green and gazebo. Upon reaching the Green, the New Testament story of the Nativity was read and enacted by local adults and children, live cattle, goats, a very personable donkey, and an infant who portrayed the baby Jesus. Here are several photos from the event. Perhaps next December you may want to attend the event as a way to start off your holiday season.
Again, Happy New Year to all of you!
