Yard Crawl results

Wanted to report to you the success of our participation in the Yard Crawl held Saturday. MWC netted $600 from the sale of donated items and snacks!  Thanks to those who helped with setting up, transporting, pricing, selling, taking down, more transporting, and of course donating. A special thanks goes to Erica Hepner and her family for allowing us to set up in their yard.  They were very gracious hosts, and even their sons were great helpers. Several of our Board members braved the heat and stuck it out all day Saturday.  We also had rack cards to hand out with info on rehearsals and concerts, so we had a chance to touch base with potential singers and audience members.  Robb and Richard were "kings of publicity" in this respect.  Our left-over items were taken to area thrift stores.
Be sure you have Sept. 12 marked on your calendar as our first rehearsal!

Something nice Ramona heard about us

I wanted to mention a big compliment (and promotion) that our chorus received on Wednesday. I met with a small group of retired teachers from two of my former schools, and one has attended several of our concerts at New Market. She was telling everyone how they should attend a MWC concert, and in particular mentioned how great the spring concert was. I believe she said, "It was so rousing, that [she] didn't want it to be over." She also mentioned our "director" whose personality just drew in the audience. So, Scott, don't let that go to your head too much! It's nice to hear these kinds of comments.
