|Open Mic Night was a “Rocking” good time!|
We had 12 people that performed at our Christmas Open Mic Night, Thursday, Dec. 13. The favorite song of the night was “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree,” performed by Julia Chencharick and then Walter Baldwin did his version of the song. We also had “Jingle Bells” performed by Danial Baldwin. My favorite was “Blue Christmas,” performed by Walter Baldwin. (Ok, now you know I am a big Elvis fan!) He also performed “White Christmas” and “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth” which had us all laughing. Joshua Wickes recited an Edgar Allen Poe poem entitled “The Bells.” We had a trio of boys who even tried to rap “Silent Night!” Everyone enjoyed it when the moms stood up and sang, “Dashing Thru the Snow.” The Baldwin Family did a great job on “O Come, O Come, Emanuel.”
There were a few people that performed more than once. So, we did not have a first or second place; instead, everyone that participated in the event got to put their name in a drawing for one of three $5.00 gift cards from Walmart and one $10.00 gift card from McAlister’s Deli.
The winners: Walter Baldwin won the $10 gift card, Danial Baldwin won a $5.00 Walmart card, Micah Floyd won a $5.00 Walmart card, and Julie Baldwin won the last $5.00 Walmart card.
|Santa visited the Magee Library!|
Santa has come and gone so he could get back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve! But when he visited the library, we had sixty-five little ones come to get their picture made with Santa Claus. While they waited for their pictures “to develop” the children had refreshments of hot chocolate and cookies. The children made a Christmas ornament to take home with them. It was a foam craft of a snowman holding a candy cane with the year on it to mark the occasion. We are already looking forward to next December!
