Arbor 19 | 12.22.18

For 19 years some friends of mine have been putting on a Christmas show in their local town in South Jersey. Like the grinch’s heart, it’s grown bigger and bigger along with all the families involved. There have been a bunch of musicians involved in making the musical compilation that accompanies the show every year. I have been lucky enough to count myself among them. That’s an average of 15 original Christmas songs every year for 19 years. This year also saw the introduction of “Gifty” the Arbor mascot. With no signs of stopping, I came along to document it this year. It’s like a big family party where the kids gets up and show off the talents that they’ve acquired over the past year… and they are some talented kids. —m
