Entertainment At Sunnyside Xmas Tree Lighting

On this night the Sunnyside Drum Corp came out in the inclement weather and treated us to a few rousing tunes. Their fine work was complemented by the choral voices of the Long Island City YMCA Singers, an informal group of people with angelic voices who like to sing.
