CHORUS NOTES OCTOBER 20, 2019
From the Artistic Director

THANKS to all who were able to sing at the OUT Exhibition on Saturday. Well done and much appreciated! If you were not there, stop by Banks Avenue Bar, 32 Banks Avenue and check out the historic photos, transcripts of interviews and back issues of publications and articles about LGBTQ life in Asheville. If you have materials (photos, articles, etc.) pertaining to Asheville or North Carolina LGBTQ history, speak to Jerome about providing them to the Pack Library NC Room. They can digitize and return to you or keep them. Thanks Butch, WNC PRIDE, BUTCHOUT and Pack Library for sponsoring this exhibit!

Executive Director message

Welcome to our new members Joshua and Zacary and Gene. We are glad to have you be part of our chorus and excited as we enter the holiday season.

Soon I will be reaching out for help with our holiday float and guess what, it's time to start planning our February fundraiser. We have moved the date to February 29! This will give us a couple extra weeks to prepare.

A shout out to Bernie for a speedy recovery from surgery! Be on the look out for emails from avlgmcbutch@gmail.com as I will be getting us ready for GALA housing!

in gratitude,
Butch
