Children Carolers Entertain the Capitol
Today, lawmakers and visitors to the West Virginia Capitol were greeted by a choir of students from St. Francis of Assisi School from St. Albans, WV singing Christmas Carols in the lower rotunda near the Christmas Tree decorated by students from around the state.

Many people stopped during a busy legislative interim schedule to take a moment to enjoy the songs from the Kindergarten though 5th grade aged students.

Interim meetings continue through Wednesday at the Capitol and can be heard through Listen Live on the West Virginia Legislature's home page.
