Caroling on The Circle in Georgetown will take place outdoors on December 6th; The annual "Pack the Pod" food drive is also underway
After being canceled last year because of the pandemic, Caroling on The Circle in Georgetown is back on this year. The caroling event will take place outdoors, weather permitting, on Monday, December 6th at 6:30 p.m. A rain/snow date is not planned.

In addition, the 38th annual food drive kicks off this week and runs through the end of December. According to Sussex County, the public is asked to do their part to “Pack the Pod” – a 14-foot by 7-foot portable storage shed that will be set up at The Circle later this month – with donated food items.

Food items will be collected the night of Caroling on The Circle, but donations can also be dropped off between now and the end of December at the County Administrative Offices building, next to the courthouse, in Georgetown. Receptacles will also be available outside the County complex throughout the holiday season.
