'Carols' Event Sees Changes
A special treat during Weymouth's Christmas House is the traditional "Carols at Weymouth," 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29, in the Great Room. Admission is free.
The premiere of a new group called "Weymouth Singers" is part of this traditional program dating back to the original owners of Weymouth, Katharine and James Boyd.
Also on this year's special program are readings by Talmadge Ragan of her father, Sam Ragan's, poems. Sam Ragan was instrumental in saving Weymouth in the late 1970s from development after the death of Katharine Boyd, James' widow. Ragan was North Carolina's poet laureate, the publisher and editor of The Pilot, and a strong supporter of Weymouth's cultural traditions, as were the Boyds themselves.
Also on the program will be Southern Pines resident Jane McPhaul, telling about the history of Weymouth. McPhaul was a friend of Katharine Boyd. And of course there will be copious offerings of Christmas carols by volunteer musicians, the Weymouth Singers, and the audience.
This program is sponsored by Pinelawn Memorial Park.
