A community ensemble has been put together to offer their musical talents under the direction of Sgt. Tom Freeman of the Salvation Army.

Last year was our first year to have the event on the Public Square and the rain on the Saturday before moved us inside First Baptist Churchs The Rock, said Sean Patrick, Kiwanis Club of Lebanon member and organizer of this years event.

First Baptist has offered their building again this year if we need it, but I believe the Lord has blessed us this year with great weather and we look forward to watching the sun come up as we celebrate Easter with our community, Patrick added.
