A HUGE thank you to those who participated in our Kemah fund-raising: Lisa Trewin, Suzanne Mitchell, Vickie Davis, June Russell, Mary Nepveux, Cecil Lanier, Scott Mermelstein, Beverly Mintz, Laurie Reynolds, Joyce Lewis, Bob Browning, Roger Cutler, Matt Henderson, Debby Grueser, Melissa Hale, Christine Economides, and especially Lee Williams and Sally Hoffecker for heading up the two groups! They had great fun and got wonderful reviews. There may even be some pictures of these folks on the Kemah website, and I am expecting pictures in the mail any day. The chorus will receive funds which will be put into our tour account. Say thanks to these folks for their contribution to the chorus!
The 2 Allen Center opportunities will probably not take place, due to financial issues. Thanks to the many of you who volunteered for that - I will keep you posted!
