Dear Editor,

Thank you to Brant Cohen and other stu­dents from the Phi Mu Alpha Sin­fonia Music Fra­ternity for singing Christmas Carols at our annual Com­munity Christmas Tree Lighting Cer­emony in North Adams the last three years.  Our res­i­dents look forward to hearing and vis­iting with these tal­ented stu­dents, and we look forward to 2018 and asking them to sing, while riding on our fire truck, from the library to the village fire department for hot cocoa and cookies. We are thrilled to have them par­tic­i­pating with our com­munity res­i­dents.

Rick Beach is the pres­ident of the North Adams Village.
