summer songfest 2011

Our fearless leader works her magic with us.... Thanks Sue Rhebergen for agreeing to do this with us!!

Why do 40+ people give up a whole Saturday in the summer to come and practice and then do a concert that night?? Well, we are a little crazy, and we do like these people we sing with...some we don't see a lot, so it is a reunion...
And the chance to sing with some really good voices, when I'm not a really good voice is so nice. The people who listen are truly blessed by the sounds...And we do it because several of us have received The Memorial Peace Award, given at graduation in memory of 4 graduates who gave their lives during the Vietnam War. When the money ran out, we decided to help it continue, and to continue to remember those who gave all to keep us free, so that we have a Saturday to get together and sing our hearts out...No dang chemo is going to keep Elaine down. We had to Make Our Own Kind of Music!!

Thanks to all of our singers and all of our audience... See you in 2 more years!!!

Remind me of this in 2 years Karen. I'd love to be home for it. I think it would be alot of fun. I'm sure I'd see a few faces I haven't seen in a few (30+) years.

Mrs R looks great too
