Holiday in the Park

Holiday in the Park, the annual musical event sponsored by National Park Community College and the Fun City Chorus, will be held Monday, December 2, 6:30 p.m., in Horner Hall of the Hot Springs Convention Center. Admission is a non-perishable food item.

Hosting the event will be Mr. Ned Perme, head meteorologist at KATV Channel 7, who will be returning after emceeing this concert last year. Music students from Garland County schools will be featured performers for the evening concert along with Mr. Perme. Schools participating this year are: Langston Elementary, Angelique Ziegler, music teacher; Lake Hamilton Intermediate School Choir, Paul Graves, music teacher; Hot Springs Middle School, Tina McGrew, music teacher; Fountain Lake High School Cobra Chorus, Mary Sargo Shapiro, director; Lake Hamilton Junior and Senior High School choirs and La Bella, Joyce Wood, director; Jessieville High School Choir, Lydia de Sambourg, director; Fun City Chorus of Hot Springs, Steve Spakes, director; and National Park Community College Singers and Soundwaves, Denise Edds, director.

The NPC Medical Professions high school students have chosen this event to be their service project again this year. These students have been collecting non-perishable food items throughout Hot Springs and will have them ready to be given to the Potter's Clay, The Jackson House, and Samaritan Ministries the night of Holiday in the Park. They will also be collecting food items at the door at Horner Hall.

Dr. Sally Carder, President of NPC, said, "Holiday in the Park is our gift to the Hot Springs community. Donations and crowds grow each year, making it a highlight of this festive time of year. We combine 'service to others' and 'celebration' which defines this season. This is one event you don't want to miss."

Denise Edds, NPC Choral Director, who has been coordinating this event since its inception in 1999, stated, "Holiday in the Park has grown every year since its beginning. Last year there were over 1,200 people in attendance, over 3,000 pounds of non-perishable food distributed, and 200 area school students singing in the Massed Choir."

The admission to this community event is a non-perishable food item collected at the door. Donations will also be accepted.
