As we move towards the holiday season we find ourselves thinking of our lists of presents to buy, things to do and places to go. The hustle and bustle of the season can be both daunting and overwhelming to some. On that note we invite you into the peace and tranquility of The Shirley Meeting House for our 16th Annual Candlelight Vespers program. Relax in the warmth of the Shirley Meetinghouse and listen as we offer you our gifts of story and song. Be prepared lift your voice as we all join in singing a few holiday favorites. The evening begins at 6:15 with a prelude concert featuring organist Lois Toeppner and flutist Laura Finkelstein. After the program please join us at the Center Town Hall for refreshments and time with friends and family. Admission: A donation to The Shirley Meeting House.
