Get ready for a wild ride through “The Sights and Sounds of the Season.”
For these next days before Christmas, we will be building a community Christmas card. We will keep the first “Sights and Sounds” upfront as traditional, introductory Christmas entertainment. The newest postings will all come immediately after the Choir on Temple Square. That way, we will not have to scroll to the end to find our most recent postings and contributions.
If you have favorites to contribute, please leave all and their website links at the end of this page in the “Leave a Reply” box or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
