WCC will host three musical groups during the evening:
5:15-5:45 – Linda Flikkema’s piano students will play Christmas music.
Linda Flikkema and her students are from Clinton. Linda has been teaching piano for about 20 years. Her students range in age from early elementary to high school. They have been working hard and are all very excited to share some of the Christmas pieces they are learning.
6:00-6:30 Clinton Community Children’s Choir will perform. CCCC was established in 2013 as a free choir experience for any child in grades 1 and up that loves to sing. The goal of the choir is to learn singing skills and have fun doing it. They have two concerts a year plus a few performances by request. CCCC is under the direction of Audrey Owen and Deanna Petersen. They are accompanied by Carol Hunter and bell choir director, Lisa Gerwulf.
6:45- 7:15 The Clintones will sing many familiar Christmas songs. The Clintones are 39 dedicated women from Clinton, Camanche, Fulton, Morrison, and Goose Lake who love to sing. This is their 50th year of performing at the region's care centers and community events. They average close to 40 sing outs a year. Ona Chaney is the director. Barbara Willoughby is the accompanist.
Events during Fulton's Christmas Walk are free and open to the public. The facility is accessible to people with disabilities.
