A popular community tradition may be coming back to Masset. A group of three volunteers – Jenny Nelson, Wendy Reilly and Etchi Zaleski – is trying to revive the Community Christmas Concert, a highlight of the Christmas season during the 1980s and early 1990s. Ms Nelson wrote to Masset council earlier this month, explaining the plans and requesting free use of the community hall for a few rehearsals before the show, which is planned for Dec. 11. “As you may recall, we did annual community Christmas concerts for over 13 years, beginning in the 1980s, and it was a favourite community event,” she wrote. Ms Nelson said the volunteers will try to paint the back of the stage and repair the curtains in exchange for the use of the hall. Council members agreed to allow the hall use at their Oct. 13 meeting.
