Sometimes something takes on a life of its own in a was that was not originally anticipated. More years ago than I care to remember I started hosting the Westborough DTC holiday party. It was a fun low key affair usually on a Thursday evening and then we moved it to Friday. One year I think about eight people came and it didn’t have a good feel to it. I said to myself I’m never going to have only eight people show up again. Well be careful what you wish for. The last several years we have had more than 200 people at what is now a Sunday afternoon gathering. You’re all invited. Please join me at 17 Gary Circle in Westborough from 2 to 6 PM. I’m thrilled at the number of elected officials who are planning on attending. It’s a football friendly, family friendly open house with people coming and going throughout the afternoon. I’ve got coat racks and a sign-in table set up in the garage. Children’s games are in the basement. It’s not for the claustrophobic. One BMGer told me that she came once and she’s glad she came, but she doesn’t plan to come again. [...]
As I’ve said before, I rarely cross the streams between my musical and blogging lives, but occasionally it happens. So I just want to let you know that I am singing with the Boston Pops this month on a bunch of their “Holiday Pops” extravaganzas. The program is very fun, and definitely kid-friendly. I’m singing the shows listed at this link. Also, you never know who is going to show up as the special celebrity narrator of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” – yesterday it was State Auditor Suzanne Bump.
