KENDALL – The Kendall community held its annual tree lighting and caroling celebration tonight at the gazebo at the town park.

Kendall school musicians performed for the event. Jonathan Price plays the saxophone.

Eliya Cooper, wearing Santa hat, sings with the Kendall chorus. The group sang a few songs, including “Jingle Bells” and “Silent Night.”

Bob Ryan, a member of the Kendall Lions Club, leads a group of children in singing several Christmas songs.

The Lawnchair Ladies performed a couple choreographed songs. The group of 18 includes Kathy Kemp, in front. They will be part of Brockport’s parade of lights at 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The crowd gathered to help celebrate the holiday season.

Santa and an elf joined the celebration at the gazebo, posing for pictures with children. The event then shifted to the firehall, where Santa mingled with residents before getting back to work.
