Caine hosts Kiwanis’ Christmas program
Sharon Caine hosted the Kiwanis Club’s Christmas program. She spoke on the history of Christmas carols, brought each person a Christmas treat and had members singing Christmas carols in between her readings.
Music was provided by Alissa Hanson as she played the violin and was accompanied by Caine on the piano. Caine and her husband, Don, also sang a duet. Caine told the group that “White Christmas” was the most recorded song of all times. A Christmas carol is a religious song meant to be sung outside of church, Caine said.
Caine said carols, secular or religious, help people celebrate Christmas. They remind people of bright holiday seasons from the past and give hope for a brighter future, she said. Carols continue to remind people of the importance of harmony, peace on earth and goodwill toward everybody, she said.
President Janna Bergstedt led the meeting with 29 members attending. Judy Frieze, the Action Club’s vice chair, attended the Kiwanis meeting as a guest. Wes Hart collected “Happy Dollars” for the Salvation Army.
Kiwanis will celebrate Spouses Day at noon during the next meeting at the Legacy Center. Jamestown Kiwanis meets each Monday at noon and welcomes new members. To join the club as a guest or for any other information, email JamestownKi email@example.com or visit www.facebook.com/ JamestownKiwanis.
