Monday, March 6

Don't forget that Monday's MWC rehearsal will be held at Manor Memorial UM Church on Main St. in New Market.  Plan to arrive by 6:55 p.m. All March rehearsals will be held at this location.
Please remember to bring your gift card(s) or certificate(s) for our spring raffle.  It is very important that we each try to make this a success.  We will also be sending out donor letters, so please be thinking of individuals or businesses you can contact (different from the ones sent in the fall).
 We still need to raise about $5000 in the category of donations (individual/business).  This includes business ads for the program.  We raised over $600 from our Yard Sale in August, and still need to raise a little over $2,000 in order to meet our goals. 
Thanks so much for your talent and commitment to Masterworks Chorus!!!
