Still… No Room in the Inn, the joyful annual caroling at homeless shelters and other spots in downtown St. Petersburg, is this Friday, December 9 from 7:00-9:00 PM. We begin and end at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 100 Mirror Lake Drive in St. Petersburg, concluding the evening with cookies and hot chocolate.

Here are updates, including a schedule of stops with addresses:

•  We will be caroling at the shuffleboard courts again this year! (see above)

•  Lutheran Apartments has invited us into their activity room to see their Christmas decorations.  Please bring a mask so you can enjoy their hospitality.

•  Please invite your friends, family, co-workers, and groups.  Dogs are also welcome!

•  A “blister bus” will be available for those who cannot walk the route or who need assistance, and we will provide carol lyrics. Here is the planned caroling schedule.  We may adjust according to traffic or excessive cheer:
