Gateway Community Band concert set for Dec. 15

CLARE — The Gateway Community Band is getting ready to "Rock Around The Christmas Tree" so residents can "Have A Holly Jolly Christmas."

The band will perform for its annual Christmas concert at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at Clare High School.

As the holidays are upon us, many reflect what Christmas, family and community really mean. Individuals are drawn together during this time of celebration and wonder. While "It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas," the community is urged not to forget why we celebrate "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year." The true meaning behind Christmas took place long ago, far "Away In A Manger."

Christmas favorites will be played. Following the concert, refreshments and desserts will be provided.
