This is a very special event. Many of my friends viewed my first attempt at Christmas Decorating my home at 49 California Ave. last year.
One of my favorite songs during the show was "The House On Christmas Street" by Judy Pancoast. Judy has done a little rewriting of her song to become "The House on California Street". Judy will be singing her song live. She will also be performing other original Christmas songs.
Judy Pancoast lives in the New England area of the US. She is doing a special concert tour of special Christmas Decorated homes across America. Other than Beaumont, her only other Southern California stop will be in Cathedral City.
Judy is an accomplished musical artist and was nominated recently for a Grammy Award. To learn more about Judy Pancoast visit www.judypancoast.com.
After the show, Judy's CDs will be available for sale, and autographs and photo ops. We are also trying to obtain a Santa Claus.
This is a very free event for everyone. We welcome everyone. Refreshments will be served by the Beaumont Cherry Valley Interact Club. Donations will be appreciated, and all proceeds will be given to the Interact Club and the Beaumont Cherry Valley Rotary Club Foundation's support of RYLA. (RYLA is an unique 3 day program for high school juniors to help guide and inspire them to become involved in their community.)
Viewing will be done from a newly installed walkway in front of my home. There will also be a VIP section with seating. A donation of $20 for the VIP seating will be appreciated for the support of the youth groups. I receive no compensation whatsoever. All donations will be paid directly to representatives of the Interact Club and the Foundation. Your support is appreciated.
Youth is the future of our community. In addition to the 12 Christmas Songs from last year, 10 more songs have been added this year. Opening night is a special event for me. I am not a professional, and this is my first opening night, I will do my best, but don't expect perfection.
I love the Christmas season. Not only is it the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, it is a time to celebrate and enjoy our lives. The joy and smile of a child is priceless, but also very very precious. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season. I hope you enjoy my humble attempt to add just a little holiday season cheer and a small smile on a child's face.
Please RSVP, especially if you would like VIP seating for a $20 donation. We would like to be as prepared as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.
