County employees sing carols for passing motorists, pedestrians

December 20, 2006|by TARA REILLY

Motorists and pedestrians passing the Washington County Administration Building on Tuesday got the chance to see the County Commissioners in rare form - singing a few Christmas and seasonal carols in public.

Led by Public Works Director Gary Rohrer, who wore a Santa hat, the commissioners and several county employees sang 11 carols for about 25 minutes on the front steps of the Administration Building.

The songs included "Frosty the Snowman," "Jingle Bells," "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," "Deck the Halls" and "Joy to the World."

A few motorists waved and honked their horns. A rendition of "Winter Wonderland" was interrupted when a man driving a station wagon turned the wrong way up West Washington Street and stopped in front of the carolers when he realized his error.

Public Information Officer Norman Bassett said the county caroling has been taking place for the last five years.

County employees also participated in a door-decorating contest at the County Administration Building, the fifth year for the contest. The theme this year was Christmas movies.
