Twenty-five children from the Tynwald School Choir of Zimbabwe will perform a special concert Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. at Thomaston Federated Church, 8 Hyler St.

The Tynwald School Choir will be touring several United Methodist churches in New England for three weeks in December, and Thomaston is the first stop on their tour. These children are sponsored by Aldersgate United Methodist Church and Thomaston Federated Church.

While there will not be am admission charge, a free-will offering will be collected and given to the choir to defray its expenses. The children are hoping to earn enough money to begin a computer program in their school, so donations of used laptops also will be greatly appreciated.

Everyone is invited to be part of an international experience sure to evoke the spirit of the season. For more information, call the Rev. Jackie Brannen at 242-2770.
