December 22, 1983 – A Christmas celebration was held at the Kelley House Museum. Rain Straight Down presented a program of poetry and music. Jay Frankston read his book, “A Christmas Story,” music was provided by Jack Leung on harpsichord and Marcia Sloane on cello, and the carolers were Barbara Faulkner, Bessy Moore, Jim Denton, and Jeffery Garcia.

These photos of the carolers were also taken in 1983, but not at the Kelley House. Does anyone know where these photos were taken?
