Mrs. Edison's Hymn Sing
Celebrate the Edison Festival of Light and help feed the hungry by attending Mrs. Edison’s Hymn Sing Tuesday, Feb. 4, at The First Presbyterian Church in downtown Fort Myers at the corner of Second Street and Lee Street. It’s the 25th anniversary of the hymn sing, which is organized and sponsored by the Galloway Family of Dealerships. Because of the overwhelming popularity of the event, three performances are planned at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. The doors will open 30 minutes prior to each performance. Admission is free, but because of the increased need for food for the hungry, organizers are requesting that those who attend bring cans of non-perishable food and a voluntary cash donation, if possible, to benefit The Soup Kitchen of CCMI (Everyday Marketplace & Café). More than 4,000 pounds of canned goods were donated at last year’s Mrs. Edison’s Hymn Sing. CCMI was started by First Presbyterian Church in 1984 to help alleviate hunger and suffering in Lee County. The church has continued to support its ministry there by providing volunteers in The Soup Kitchen and delivering hot meals to home-bound seniors. This year’s event will feature the First Presbyterian Sanctuary Choir and many other singers, including members of the Mastersingers, Guest Soloists, along with a Piano-Organ Combination. Mrs. Edison’s Hymn Sing is the first of three hymn sings sponsored annually by the Galloway Family of Dealerships. The other two are A Midsummer Night’s Sing in July and the very popular Holiday Carol Sing in December. All three events benefit The Soup Kitchen of CCMI.
