  2. Gina is managing the concert program development.  Thank you!  May 4 is the deadline for the concert program.   We can't promise that any ads/memorials/donations coming in after that date will be in the spring concert program.  We can accept donations/ads/memorials at any time after that date and acknowledge them in our next concert program (Christmas).

Remy and Denise have agreed to manage the Yard Crawl for us this year.  Thank you both!  They will keep us posted on how you can help.  We made alot of money last year and those of us who worked on the event had alot of fun too.  I was a newbie and it was very fun way to get to know chorus members.
