Songs of the Season



People from throughout the Straits area came to the Gros Cap Church Sunday night, December 11, to be part of its Christmas singa long. St. Ignace’s Stanley and Bernice Bickham (front, from left), Cheboygan’s Patty Bachelder, and Mrs. Bickham’s brother Ray Marshall of St. Ignace all have front row seats and their music books ready before the program starts. Behind them (from left) MaryAnn Moore and Susie Safford both came across the Mackinac Bridge from Mackinaw City to take part.
