A crowd of residents flocked to the New Milford Village Green Dec. 19 for the annual Carol Sing. The event, sponsored by the New Milford Commission on the Arts, featured caroling led by Al Bayers and accompanied by Bob Keck and members of the New Milford High School chorus.

Santa Claus, escorted by Water Witch Hose Co. No. 2, arrived during the festivities. Prior to the Carol Sing, horse-drawn carriage rides around the Green were sponsored by Housatonic Valley Insurance Agency, Berkshire Hathaway Realtors and Bank Street Theater.

The Carol Sing was inaugurated in conjunction with the New Milford Commission on the Arts by Skitch Henderson, then the conductor of the New York Pops and a New Milford resident, who died in 2005.
