There are several other activities besides the house tour scheduled in Wykoff this weekend.

A craft show is set at the Wykoff Community Hall Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and lunch will be served there from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. by donation.  

The Wykoff Area Historical Society (WAHS) will host its annual Christmas concert, conducted by Elliott Grandall, at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Wykoff Sunday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m.

The concert will open with the audience singing “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” and features a medley of songs by the WAHS Carolers — “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “Away in a Manger,” “Fum, Fum, Fum!,” “The Holly and the Ivy,” and “While By Our Sheep.”  

There will be several Christmas solos by outstanding area soloists — Renee Lechner on flute, Julie Mlinar with a vocal solo, Myrna Legreid with a vocal solo, Reese Wolf with a vocal solo and Karen Grandall on a violin solo.  

A women’s ensemble will present the very popular “Mary, Did You Know?” and six more beautiful settings of the Christmas season will be performed by the talented WAHS Carolers — including “Come, Emmanuel,” “Fear Not!,” “Hallelu!,” “Ring the Bells,” “Light of the Stable,” and “Were You There on That Christmas Night?” Amanda Geer, soprano, will prepare the majestic “O Holy Night,” and the audience will end the warm, wonderful evening with “Silent Night,” in both German and English.
