Rehearsal News

Welcome Dr. Tim (baritone)!

It’s Christmas time at the VFW. Break out the jingle bells and chug the eggnog.

Please put the Christmas party on you calendar. Sunday December 17th.

We need a mall concert. If you know of a place to play let us know.

Smitty will be having eye surgery the week after Thanksgiving keep him in your thoughts.

Thursday’s performance is in the cafeteria. Traffic dies down at about 8:35am. Park by the PE fence if all the spots are taken. OBT is better than John Young for traffic.
