Tuba Christmas Was A Jolly Event!

Several Merrimack Valley Rotarians gather at Faneuil Hall in Boston to witness 200 Tuba's playing holiday music.

The event had a Rotary connection as Elliot, husband of MVR member Debi Farnsworth, was one of the band members. Tuba Christmas, which was being held all over the U.S. on Saturday November 24, has been a holiday tradition in Boston for more than three decades.

It was an amazing sight and sound; 200 tubas all playing at the same time! Everyone had a great time.

See if you can spot Elliot in the picture of the players. Hint: he is wearing a red hat!

After taking in the event, the Rotarians warmed up in Cheers Pub! Both the conversation, laughter and the cheer flowed freely!

We can hardly wait until next year!
