Volunteers Needed to Set Carolling Record

by Christopher O'Brien

christmasClipart1The hours are fading if you’d like to help Wolcott make a huge holiday statement in a beautiful way.

Voices from Wolcott residents will fill the air this Saturday to spread holiday cheer and potentially set a new World’s Record for most carolers in a single event. The event begins at 4 pm at Wolcott High School, but participants must pre-register by midnight tonight at www.encorescholarship.org.

Local resident and former Miss Wolcott Stacy Perrone is organizing the effort to instill Christmas spirit and a sense of pride. “This is a great way to give back to the community,” she told Michael Bruce in an recent interview on WLCT96. She is hoping that at least 2000 carolers show up so that Wolcott has a chance to break the world record for number of carolers in a single event. That record is currently held by Waukesha, Wisconsin after 1822 carolers took the crown from Westport when they set a record in 2002 with 502 carolers. A committee is assisting with this effort.

Registrataion on site will start at 2 pm at Wolcott High school. Carolling will begin at 4 pm through the Kalko Drive neighborhood. Hot chocolate will be provided by the Wolcott Community Bible Church. Streets in the area will be closed to allow the procession to proceed safely. Should there be inclement weather, then the event will the next day, Sunday the 14th.

Residents – as well as area visitors and guests are invited to participate, but are asked to sign up by midnight tonight.

Any questions, please contact Ms. Perrone at 203-228-7305.
