Hi Everyone:

I’m looking forward to having our rehearsal at Trinity U.C. on Wednesday.   I will still have tickets available for sale ($10).  If possible, please turn in any money you have collected for tickets picked up previously.

Just a few notes for everyone before the Concert on Saturday evening.

For an event of this size, Trinity provides two members to be available in the church building.   Ron McMillan and John Bye are both good friends of mine.  They will look after running the elevators for all guests who need them. Please feel free to chat with them and ask any questions about the building you may have.  That’s what they are there for!   Ron will also help us move the risers on the stage.

The most asked question is always about bathrooms.  There are two on the auditorium level.   One on the main level, in the coat rack area.  And, one on the mezzanine level.

There are handicapped parking spots in the parking lot off Stevenson Street.  The first 2 or 3 spots are reserved, and as well there is one at the back of the auditorium.   There is a ramp going into the church at the back of the auditorium, and also a new ramp going into the side door off the parking lot.

I am suggesting choir members park across the street at Edward Johnson School when they arrive at 5:30 p.m.  This will leave the Trinity parking lot and adjacent streets (Balsam & Pine) available for guests.  If the parking space at the school appears full, there is additional parking available at the back.  There is a traffic light in front of the school to ensure everyone crosses Stevenson Street safely.

I will lock purses in the Chalmers Room during the duration of the Concert.  This is the room immediately inside the side door from the parking lot (same as last concert).  The door will be opened at, say, 7:00 p.m., and locked at 7:15 p.m.   It will be reopened as soon as I can get there after the Concert.  However, I will not be able to remain in the room to supervise purses during the time the door is actually unlocked.

Please bring your refreshments for intermission, and place them on the large table in the auditorium when you arrive.    And, please don’t forget to take your plate/bowl back home with you.  Bring FINGER FOODS ONLY – nothing requiring a fork or spoon to eat.

Thank you so much to all of you who have volunteered to help out.   Together, we will all contribute to the huge success of our Concert.   And, I know any choir member will be happy to pitch in and help if any unexpected need arises.  You’re great!!
