General Membership Meetings
October 12 & November 9
Guild had two well attended general membership meetings. In October at the home of Beth Coulson almost 40 were in attendance. In November at the home of Ellon Cockrill over 30 were in attendance. Both meetings had wonderful music, delicious food and delightful company. You don't want to miss the next meeting (February 8)!
|Our hospitality team: Joyce Harms, Alice Pfeiffer, Peyton Bishop and Fran Nelson.
Tandy Cobb has presented 'Five Minutes of Guild History' at each of the fall general membership meetings. The October presentation was on music education programs and the November one was about Guild fundraising. As we celebrate our 50th year as a Guild, it's interesting to look back on our history. You can read the October presentation HERE and the November one HERE
|Ushers Richard Moore, Mark Hotchkiss, Sue Mistric & Cheryl Fallis
ASO Guild continues to provide ushers for all ASO concerts. It's been a challenge adapting to the new Robinson, but our usher corps has taken it well in stride. Many thanks to concert activities chair Lori Llewellyn for all she does.
