Torchlight Parade and Carol Sing
Sunday, December 4
Join Enfield’s five fire departments for their annual Torchlight Parade. This spectacular winter parade showcases vehicles of all sizes decorated and lighted to the max along with floats and the high school marching band. The parade kicks off at Enfield Street School at 6:00pm and ends at the Town Green. Viewing can be seen from anywhere on Enfield Street and the street will be closed to traffic for the parade.
Sunday, December 4
As the parade arrives at the town green, they will be ushered in by the Enfield Community Band playing all your holiday favorites. Enfield Culture and Arts Commission will kick off the second half of the evening with a reading from their own Poet Laurate. The Mayor will open the Carol Sing with welcoming remarks and the lighting of the Christmas tree. The combined school choruses will lead everyone in the Carol Sing. Santa will make a special appearance and People to People will be selling hot chocolate and cookies. Dress warm and come prepared to sing.
Rocking Chair Readers
KITE is excited for the return of Rocking Chair Readers and we are requesting your assistance. This program was paused due to Covid restrictions, and we are happy to be in a place where we can bring it back. This 2Generational program brings together Enfield Seniors and our youngest citizens for weekly read-alouds. My mother-in-law was part of the initial roll out and it was the highlight of her week. She would actually stay beyond the hour to assist in the classroom, and it brought her as much joy as the littles.
Currently we have 6 openings for Seniors to volunteer to read to the littles at the Stowe Early Learning Center. Hours are flexible, but require at least one hour per week. Interested individuals should complete the form attached and either take a picture and email to KITE’s Program Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail it to us at the Stowe Early Learning Center. Please print and share with your seniors, and/or email/share on social.
