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 or call Town Hall at 302-378-8082.
