Holiday caroling party benefits land trust

Dec 04, 2012
The Georges River Land Trust will host a holiday caroling party in Thomaston Sunday evening, Dec. 16.

Thomaston — Georges River Land Trust invites everyone to let their holiday spirit shine through by joining GRLT for caroling and holiday cheer Sunday, Dec. 16 at 6 p.m. After caroling, guests will be treated to a hot soup dinner and refreshments. Tickets to the event benefit the Georges River Land Trust and are $30, $25 for Land Trust members. Tickets must be purchased in advance either online at or by calling 594-5166.

The evening will start with caroling from Main Street through the neighborhoods of 19th-century Thomaston. Leading the caroling will be Tony Antolini, artistic director for the renowned Down East Singers since 1991. Antolini specializes in Russian choral music and is passionate about helping people express their voice through music. He lives on the St. George River and in 2002 worked with the land trust to protect 35 acres and a heron rookery through a permanent conservation easement.

The après singing party will be hosted by Carolyn Whitaker and Carl Danielson at their home in Thomaston, a beautiful Greek Revival house built in 1852 by a sea captain that will be decked out in an array of festive holiday decorations. Guests will be treated to food and refreshments to warm the body and spirit in a joyful atmosphere.

The caroling party is the final 2012 Revelry for the River event sponsored by Georges River Land Trust to celebrate 25 years of conservation. The series has been such a success that GRLT will be hosting 17 new Revelry for the River events in 2013.
