SHREWSBURY – Community, cocoa, and caroling.
The Shrewsbury community gathered on the Town Common to spread holiday cheer on Dec. 23.
The event, part of the First Congregational Church of Shrewsbury’s Arts on the Green series, featured several different holiday tunes – everything from “Frosty the Snowman” to “Joy to the World.” Curtis Smith, the church’s director of music, led the festivities.
Caroling on the Common featured free hot chocolate, something appreciated by hundreds of chilly community members. The Worcester Brass Consort accompanied the carols.
The event was sponsored by Chiampa Funeral Home, Central One Federal Credit Union, Gaudette Insurance Agency, Thrive Real Estate, and the Shrewsbury Cultural Council.
