*GCS SUNDAY: THIS SUNDAY – November 23 at 11:00 a.m. REQUIRED FOR ALL CHORISTERS and followed by a wonderful reception!

*CHOIR TOUR INFORMATION:
We have made our goal of 50 participants and have filled the bus so to speak! Enrollment is basically closed, but if you are still thinking about your chorister attending haven’t said anything now it the time while we might be able to still be creative.
The First Deposit is due on 1 December in the amount of $500.00 for each person going on the tour.
Please make your check out to GRACE CHURCH IN NEW YORK, Memo: Choir Tour Deposit One and list who it is for. These checks should be given to P. Allen.
If you have not done so and would like to request financial aid for your chorister, please talk with P. Allen.
Please indicate on your deposit whether your chorister and or family member will purchase the group air travel package so we can plan for that. If you do not indicate this we will assume you are making your own travel arrangements to and from France.
The work in progress Itinerary is attached to this email. Have a look, be ready to chime in with your thoughts after Thanksgiving. We will want your feedback.

*TUESDAY JUNIOR EVENSONG WILL TAKE PLACE this Tuesday 25 November at 6:00 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.
