— Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools celebrates the Season of Giving with its 3rd Annual Winter Fest 4-7 p.m. Dec. 11 in the cafeteria of Carman-Ainsworth High School, G-1300 N. Linden Rd.
The annual event features holiday music provided by the district’s own musical talents, such as the Carman- Ainsworth Orchestra, and The Salvation Army. Other highlights of Winter Fest include crafts for children and families, a performance by a dance group and caroling in between acts. “Each person gets a few minutes to perform,” said Rod Reyes, family community support coordinator at Head Start.
Winter Fest is not limited to members of the Carman-Ainsworth community. “Anybody that wants to come can,” Reyes said. Last year’s event drew approximately 600 people.
Free hot chocolate and doughnuts will be provided to all attendees. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Admission to Winter Fest can be one of the following items: a non-perishable food item, a gently-used coat, an unwrapped toy or a monetary donation. Donations will go to support the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, The Salvation Army, U.S. Marines Toys for Tots and The Old Newsboys.
