 I had a wonderful vacation and would like to extend many thanks to Dr. Ann Small for her excellent work in my absence as well as to guest organist Amy Crane, who filled in for Boyd on June 11 while he was away concertizing.

The Chancel Choir will be singing in the 11:00 service on July 2 and 9 and will then have a well-deserved break until mid-August.  The Handbell Choir will continue to rehearse as members are available, but there will be no rehearsal on Thursday, July 6 for either group.

Handbells will rehearse on July 13 in preparation for July 16 worship. Thursday night rehearsals will resume full speed ahead on August 17, and we are planning a hymn sing for August 16 at the potluck dinner – be thinking about your favorite hymns to request!

If you’ve been thinking about joining the choir, please put August 17 on your calendar and give it a try!

Finally, I would like to extend grateful thanks to Sandy Weil for typing, copying and distributing the texts for our choral anthems for the 11:00 congregation – it’s a lot of work and much appreciated by many!

A huge thank you to Barbara Hughes for arranging to have the bell choir materials moved to better storage for much easier use for the group!
