From the Prez

It was great to see so many of you at our weekly rehearsal and it was great to be back among friends. While in Phoenix, beside the possibility of being Coyote breakfast, lunch and/or dinner, I had a chance to attend a rehearsal for East Valley Harmonizers (EVH) with special guest Masterpiece. Wow, Norm spoils us by letting us remain seated for much of the rehearsal. The excitement in the air was tremendous for they are preparing for their annual show on March 8. It is always a pleasure to sing with the EVH, they are always so welcoming. I would like to ask our members to be more welcoming to any guests we might have. Never know when that guest may become a member because several of us took the time to welcome them. 
- Thanks, John

Valentines
Thanks to all those that sold singing Valentines.  We had 3 quartets that had 33 deliveries.  The chapters made about $1400 from the effort.  Good job.  Thanks to The Rocketeers (Jim S. John, Tony, and AD), Extended Chords (Jim P., Frank, David G., and Dick) and Eight Feet Wide (David M., Mel, Jerry, and Ralph.). Eight Feet Wide got to sing for and with Kenny Ray Hatton, lead for Bluegrass Student Union, 1978 Gold Medlatists, and his wife, Kay.

Last rehearsal was fantastic! Memorize your music!
