A Lost & Found Christmas

"Unpretentious, homespun and low-key, the evening of stories, readings and music recalls the era of the lectern and the stage and the Golden Age of radio, before the Yuletide was hijacked by film and television. " - Robert Reid, The Record 2006

We're bringing back our popular variety show filled with stories, poetry and song with special guest Michael Kelly Cavan, presented in the warmly inviting and intimate Emmanuel United Church sanctuary.  Take a break from the bustle of holiday preparations with Lost & Found.
