Brighton Christmas Activities
Christmas at Brighton Mill in Shannon is an annual event and is looked forward to with great anticipation by all of the Brighton's small fry.
At a very beautiful service in the school auditorium on Sunday evening, December 21, 1947, the Brighton Choral Club presented a group of carols and appropriate Christmas music. The more than 60 members of the choral group rendered a very inspiring program, witnessed by an appreciative audience. At the conclusion of the program the Choral Club was entertained by Mr. Morrison at a buffet supper at his Shannon home. In the living room, a group of Christmas Carols was sung and a local radio station broadcast the beautiful music.
Brighton Girl Scouts went through the village on Christmas Eve and sang Christmas Carols outside the windows of each shut-in.
Contributing most to the true Christmas Spirit was the friendship and comradeship which exists between members of the Brighton Family, not only at Christmas but throughout the entire year.
