HearthStone’s own Ben Blaustein played the guitar while Karen Clapp led the vocals.

The residents in attendance were buoyed by the holiday cheer and joined in the caroling. Each received a colorful Christmas tree light “necklace” and bell “bracelets” to jingle. Cookies and punch were enjoyed at the end of the festive hour.
