11th December Notices

Monday Notices - 11th December 2017

Dear all
Just a thought …!
Once again, we have a very busy week ahead with the rehearsal on Wednesday focused on making sure we are fully prepared for the concert on Wednesday 20th December. Our hard work and commitment over the last few weeks in rehearsals will lead, I am sure, to another memorable and enjoyable performance.
A quote …!
“I will honour Christmas
in my heart and try to keep it
all the Year.”

 (A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens)

 A rather brief set of notices with important reminders in readiness for the concert, please read on!
Reminders/Updates

Christmas Concert Rehearsal
The rehearsal at Newbold on the 20th December will start at 6:00pm.

Donations of Mince Pies (please sign up again – many apologies!)
My sincere apologies but I have managed to lose the sign-up sheet for donations of ‘Mince Pies’ and I am feeling very embarrassed about it! I therefore seek your forgiveness and humbly ask you to sign up once again.  A sheet of paper will be available, once again, for signing up during the break.

The following information was included in last week’s notices and is intended as a reminder.

This is the final week for orders to be made with payment so that Roger can then arrange the appropriate size of coach or coaches.  The Publicity Committee will deal with payments.’
