It's the busy Christmas
season, but there is a big event in January to mark on your calendar. Thirty
musicians are rehearsing for their yearly concert, "Will Sing for
Food." The fun-filled night will
be filled with a variety of songs from different genres from pop to rock, folk
to Broadway. All donations will help fund the Long Island Council of
Churches' food pantries. Suggested donations are $20 each. Come to enjoy the
music and help support those in need.
