Chamber Singers on holiday stage 

The Windham Chamber Singers will perform Dec. 19 at Merrill Auditorium in Portland as part of the Christmas with Kennerley musical celebration of the holidays.

James Kennerley, Portland’s municipal organist, will lead a program of Christmas classics performed by Mezzo soprano soloist Briana Hunter, Windham’s own Chamber Singers and Portland-based Renaissance Voices.

Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ will continue the traditional Sock (and Glove!) Drive at the concert. All collected items will be donated to Preble Street.

The show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at PortTIX and over the phone at 842-0800.

Snowshoe rentals available


There hasn’t been any snow in sight so far this winter, but we all know that will quickly change. If you’re looking for a good way to stay in shape over the cold winter months, the Windham Parks and Recreation department is offering free snowshoe rentals to Windham residents. Men’s, women’s and children’s sizes are available to borrow for the day, a few days or for a weekend. This is a very popular program, so please call ahead to 892-1905 to be sure shoes are available for your outing.
