Victorian and present day carolers filled
the Provencal-Weir House with a festive
spirit at December’s “A Dickens of a
Christmas” holiday party. The house was
packed with merry-makers of all ages,
many of whom were first-time visitors.
They listened to the joyful sounds of
singers from Grosse Pointe North.
Afterwards, a group of revelers went car-
oling on a few blocks near the Provencal-
Weir House. The Fox Creek Questers of
Grosse Pointe did a splendid job of deco-
rating the house. Lizzie’s Catering of St.
Clair Shores provided wonderful food for
all to enjoy.
