We are proud to be there to capture these moments and share the top ten most memorable photo galleries from this year in La Porte County!
It’s Christmastime in La Porte County, and nowhere is that more evident than at the La Porte High School Winter Choral Concert. Music and Christmas spirit filled the air as the students filed into the auditorium holding candles and singing traditional hymns and carols dating back centuries. Each of LPHS’s five choirs and choruses were involved in this event, which happens to mark the very last choir concert LPHS will ever hold in its old auditorium. The auditorium is slated to be torn down and replaced in the next two weeks.
