'Young and ALive' featured at WB show
BELOIT- The West Branch Alumni Association will host the Second Annual "Christmas Carols, Cookies and Candy Canes" Holiday Show and Reception at 7 p.m. Dec. 14 in the West Branch Community Auditorium at West Branch High School. The event will feature the West Branch "Young and Alive" Show Choir, followed by a Holiday Reception and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.
The event is open to the public at a cost of $5 per person. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. There are no advance sale tickets and no reserved seating. Admission includes the Holiday Show of the "Young and Alive" Show Choir, a drawing for several gift baskets and prizes, a cookies, coffee and punch reception in the High School Cafeteria, as well as an opportunity for young and old to have pictures taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Over 200 alumni and friends attended last year's inaugural event, and the Alumni Association officers anticipate an even bigger crowd this year. All proceeds from the event go to fund scholarships for West Branch students.
This is the only performance of "Young and Alive" that is open to the public. "Young and Alive" was founded in the 1960s and has been performing holiday shows for over 40 years. There are nearly 1000 "Young and Alive" alumni, and it is the hope of the alumni association that a number of former members of "Young and Alive" will be able to join with other alumni and friends for this concert-reunion event.
