The Atlantic Cape Choir took their show on the road, Friday, Dec. 9, traveling to the Vineland Veterans Home to perform their showcase as a part of the group’s community outreach initiative. Afterward, they stayed to support some local Girl Scouts who were also volunteering that evening and invited them to join the choir for an impromptu sing along to “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” for the residents before leaving for the evening. They were invited by the VFW Post 9462 Ladies Auxiliary.
