  1. The Sussex Choral Society will present it’s Christmas Concert on Sunday, December 15th, at 7:30 pm. It will be at the St. Francis Xavier Church on Church Avenue, doors open at 7:00 pm. Our conductor, Christopher Lane, has picked out a wonderful program of old favorites and new hits, and has even included something to tickle your funny bone. Come help us enjoy the Season and sing those Winter blues away!
