On Thursday, Dec. 8, Senior Services held the annual Christmas Party where the Davie High School Vocal Ensemble led by Brittany Darst performed a holiday showcase. The chorus sounded fantastic and it was request of the audience to join in and sing “Silent Night” together. It was such a great performance.

The theme for the party was “Gnome for the Holidays” and featured gnome napkins and décor along with cute gnome snacks for dessert. There were approximately 130 people in attendance, and it was a joy to have everyone enjoy the holiday spirit together.
