Holiday tradition in Iola
By Jane Myhra
It wouldn’t seem like Christmas without the annual sing-along at the Crystal.
Coffee, cookies, companionship and musical entertainment were all free on Thursday, Dec. 22, at the Crystal Café on Main Street, Iola.
The waitresses poured coffee and passed around trays of cookies to the crowd as Joe Jones, Dave Anderson and the Rev. Mark Sabin led the singing.
Everyone was silent as Sabin read the Christmas story from the Bible.
Then it was back to singing, eating and more coffee.
