With the Fourth of July just around the corner, Barb Clair will be hosting a Patriotic Sing-a-long to spark the celebrations.
The annual event will be held in Wesley Hall at Millville United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 30, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
The church, located at 36405 Club House Road in Millville, is encouraging all members of the community to attend.
Those gathered will sing patriotic songs with the choir, including the “Pledge of Allegiance,” “The Star Spangled Banner,” “God Bless America” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag.”
“I do a tribute to the Armed Forces,” Clair said. “I play all the Armed Forces songs. We have all the veterans stand up and usually say what branch they are from.”
In addition to singing, there will be a skit to the tune of “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” prizes and refreshments.
The sing-a-long began as a small gathering in Clair’s home to celebrate the holiday and has since increased to an audience of about 50 to 60 community members.
Clair said she sees the musical event as a way to give back to her fellow parishioners, who she calls her church family, as well as to serve the larger community.
“I just get rewarded and blessed from doing it. It’s fun, and I love getting together with people,” Clair said.
Clair also hosts a Christmas sing-a-long at the church and sing-a-longs at the CHEER Senior Center and Brandywine Senior Living.
