For twenty years a holiday tradition for the Central Peninsula has been the delightful voices of children caroling. Thanks to Becky Dwinell, fondly know as Miss Becky at Cook Inlet Academy where she has taught pre-school and kindergarten for two decades. Coordinating 40 some kids, this year Miss Becky took her carolers that included first and second graders as well to the Kenai Senior Center where they received a warm welcome. With the mercury dipping below zero she bundled up her choir and loaded them into the car seats of parent volunteer drivers and headed out. “It may be cold but we’re heading to Kenai to warm the hearts of our seniors,” she said. “The best thing and the reason I love doing it every year is seeing the sparkle in the kids eyes when they are singing and the blessing that the children are to the people of the community. The kids work hard to get everything right,” added Miss Becky. The afterglow of the CIA carolers and their joyful songs will linger into the New Year.
