Greetings Everyone and Happy Calm and Peaceful Friday!

*THANKSGIVING PIE and CHOCOLATE SALE SEASON in high gear!!! THE DEADLINE for ORDERS IS QUICKLY APPROACHING!

*TUESDAY JUNIOR EVENSONG STARTS UP AGAIN this Tuesday 18 November at 6:00 after two weeks off. Rehearsal starts at 5:00 in the music room for all Junior Choristers.

THE ROTA: Parents, there is now a “rota” or schedule of who is doing what at Evensong this year. It is posted on the bulletin board outside the Music Room. It is offered in an attempt to give all the choristers a chance at all the jobs that go into producing Evensong as well as to let you know in advance when your choristers might be reading or caring the cross.

*AS THE YEAR IS COMING TO AN END…please look around the house and make sure you cash all choir checks you have received. When the books are closed at the audit for each operating budget year checks can no longer be redeemed or replaced.
