ICC Choral Concert - Changes

Due to a conflict with the Football team going to a Bowl game on Sunday, Dec. 3rd, the ICC Choral Concert originally scheduled for that date has been changed.

The ICC Choral Concert will be held at the Inge Theatre on Monday, December 11th, at 7:00 p.m. 

The Music Directors wish to thank the members of FPC for graciously granting them permission to use the Sanctuary for the concert, but with the Bowl Game, changes just had to be made.  They will, however, plan to hold their Spring Concert at FPC, so please watch for that date, and come join them at the Inge Theatre on December 11.

 

PW Christmas Plans

Both circles are invited to a pot luck supper on Wednesday December 6 at 6:00pm to celebrate the Christmas season at Dorothy Burt’s home (2501 Shady Lane).   We have a mixed salad, pepperoni casserole, fruit platter, and cake already. Veggies, appetizers, or casseroles are ideas to bring. Consider sharing your favorite Christmas dish.  Please call Dorothy (331 2565) to RSVP.  

You need not be a member of FPC or PW to join us.
