ST. PATRICK'S PREVIEW PERFORMANCE

"DOUBLE CLICKING ENLARGES THE PHOTOS"

St. Patrick's Day got celebrated early at The Mount today, and many enthusiastic Irishmen and Irishwomen as well as the regular types who pretended to be Irish for the day joined in singing the Irish tunes and did some dancing as well. The Mount dining room was filled to capacity before our performance was finished and so many great comments afterwards that would warm your heart.. It was enough to want to take the group back again before the year is over.Thanks must go to Audrey Morris who put the program together and to Kelly Galloway who whipped us into shape for several Saturday rehearsals. On the official St. Patrick's Day we will give it another try.A new experience for sure.

SOBEY'S TO THE RESCUE

Thanks to Kelly we were able to acquire Sobey's Community Room in Stratford yesterday for a run-thru of our St. Patrick's Program.....a challenge indeed, so much so that more changes have taken place for next week which we all hope will provide better weather to be able to return to our home base. Sobey's was the perfect spot for us yesterday but hardly room if 20 or more had showed up. We didn't take a break yesterday or have snacks as it is against their policy unless we were to purchase from them, which we could arrange for another time.
