The town of Townsend is celebrating the holiday season with a tree lighting and Christmas caroling led by the Immanuel United Methodist Church at the Townsend municipal park on Edgar Road at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 10.

Sing-along sheets will be provided for those who may need a little help with the words.

Hot chocolate, cider and cookies will be served.

To foster the spirt of giving during the holiday season, a collection box for the local food pantry, Our Daily Bread, will be on site for those wishing to contribute.

For additional information, contact Councilwoman Lorraine Gorman at lgorman@townsend.delaware.gov or call Town Hall at 302-378-8082.
