Social Stuff
Thanks Kathleen Stepec, Sophie Schneider and Emilie Mossman for volunteering to be the social committee! Please contact them with your social event ideas. Here are a couple to get us started:
Guys and Dolls is playing at Stratford right now – we are doing a medley from that musical next session so Rachel suggested it would be great to see it now.
River Run tickets for Nov 4 concert – $20 regular, $15 for groups (4 people). Use promo code FOURPLUS to order online or you can call or go to box office. We are not going to arrange group tickets but chat with other choir members if you want to coordinate a group of four friends and family or more.

Join us after Choir!
You’re all welcome to join us after choir for a cuppa tea or your bevvie of choice at the Pennywhistle. We enjoy talking about what we’re singing, and of course it’s always fun to make new friends.

Please use the Balsam Street Entrance
Trinity United is trying to manage cleaning costs. If you feel you must use the parking lot entrance, please remove your shoes at the door.
No boots in the Sanctuary!
Don’t forget to bring slippers or shoes!
Be Scent Savvy:
Some of us are very sensitive to scents. This can include hair spray, body lotion, and other scented products. Because you wear it all the time, you may not even realize that your scent is affecting others. Please give a thought to the products you wear, and please don’t wear scents to our practices. Thank you!!
