The “Signs” of Christmas were seen and heard at the Southwest Public Libraries. On Dec. 11, the Grove City Library and the Westland Area Library were visited by the Signs of Christmas, an all-volunteer group that spreads holiday cheer and awareness of the deaf and hard of hearing communities through American Sign Language. For more than a-half-an-hour, the performers from across the region entertained the crowds with their own renditions of holiday classics such as “Jingle Bells,” “Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer,” “Santa Claus is Comin’ (In a Boogie Woogie Choo Choo Train),” “I Pray on Christmas,” and “Joy to the World.” The group, which was created in 1980, had nearly a dozen performances this season.
