Volunteerism

Hi there

Hope this missive finds you all happy, healthy, and chock full of song. Tomorrow we gather together to raise our collective voices yet again. Have you ever heard of the butterfly effect? I like to think of what we do as the “swan effect” – somewhere else in the universe becomes more graceful and light due to the sounds we emanate Saturday mornings.

Please consider donating your time (or your children’s – friends’ – neighbour’s) towards making our term end concert a smash success. Read up on the virtues of volunteerism as stated on the United Nations web site:

“Volunteerism generates well-being for people and their communities. Volunteers are motivated by values such as justice, equality, and freedom, as expressed in the United Nations charter. A society that supports volunteering is likely to be a society which also supports the well-being of it’s citizens.” “Nuff said. Make your commitment at the front desk when you check in tomorrow!

Dates to remember:

Saturday October 28th – Halloween Social after practice in the downstairs lounge. Prizes for best costume, trivia games, and bring hand-held munchies to share.

 Saturday December 2nd – End Of Term Concert, Bake and Craft sale. Take note that your attendance at the two prior rehearsals is mandatory for participation in this concert.

For those of you who just can’t get enough and/or are languishing on our waiting list – Hanna and Sue are offering a 6 week Tuesday night workshop, largely duplicating what we do Saturdays, 7 to 9 pm, from October 24 to December 5th. Location to be Delta Church, 47 Ottawa Street South. Cost of participation is $120. Interested individuals can contact info@hamiltonsings.com to register by October 20th. A minimum of 10 participants is required to cover the cost of venue rental and music.

Lamentably, board member and fellow voice Darlene Simpson, has had to depart us suddenly to return to Brantford. Best of luck on your future endeavors Darlene!

See you guys tomorrow.

Cheers

Brenda Atkinson
