Home for the Holidays, a benefit performance for the Harvest Home Grange, will be held Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the grange, located on Route 7. It is a benefit to help pay for electrical wiring recently done to the historic structure, which once was a Quaker meeting house.

The One World Singers are in their third year under the direction and creation of the group’s producer, Elizabeth A. Fafard. Also producing the performance is Ralph Hammond, who has been in the field of professional dance as well as performing for the Community Players. The title One World is from the late Bert Fafard's One World Productions in Simi Valley, Calif.

Elizabeth Fafard is a professional musical comedy actress who has appeared on radio, TV and stage and has directed choral groups of more than 100 voices at the Whole World Institute in Boston, as well as a decade of producing the Community Players at the Marsh River Theater in Brooks.

Carla and Micaela Ellis will accompany the group on piano and guitar. Carla is well-known for her portrayal of Patsy Cline's sidekick to sold-out audiences at the Marsh River Theater in Brooks. Her daughter, Micaela, has played guitar with various groups at the theater.   Mother and daughter are well-known vocalists at the theater and are also adept in acting.
