of all time. First published 177 years ago, it is perhaps even more timely today. With great pleasure,
I present, A Christmas Carol. I hope that it provides a bit of holiday cheer when we need it the most.

The human spirit, however, is tough and resolute. We have risen to meet the challenges of many difficult
times throughout history. I firmly believe that our spirit will continue to do so now!
Artists have always played important roles during such times. Through our creative accomplishments,
