Monica on 17th Avenue NE is organizing a Victory Heights caroling party this Sunday the 23rd beginning at 4PM. She says, “Let’s meet at my house – 10512 17th AVE NE – come in through the back gate located on NE 106th St. We will have cider and hot chocolate….Be sure to bring your flashlight!” Several others have volunteered song books and cookies. Hopefully the rains will hold off for a while that evening. Be prepared to greet these folks if they come to your doorstep.
