Healthcare Foundation of La Porte's 2017 Holiday at the POPS Brings Community Together to Kick off the Holiday Season

The show has been bringing the La Porte community together for the last 23 years in the spirit of the holidays and defining the beginning of the Christmas season for a community. The snowfall could not deter members of the La Porte community and surrounding area from streaming into the La Porte Civic Auditorium and embracing the spirit of the season together.
It’s Christmastime in La Porte County, and nowhere is that more evident than at the La Porte High School Winter Choral Concert. Music and Christmas spirit filled the air as the students filed into the auditorium holding candles and singing traditional hymns and carols dating back centuries. Each of LPHS’s five choirs and choruses were involved in this event, which happens to mark the very last choir concert LPHS will ever hold in its old auditorium. The auditorium is slated to be torn down and replaced in the next two weeks.
