MUSIC GUILD UPDATE
Our announcement for the “Greens Sale” is out and hopefully you decide to order some for the season and help sustain our main mission in support of Choir Camp.
Although many events have been shut down or curtailed the past 18 months, the Music Guild has been quietly going about the business of raising funds for our kids. Although camp was shut down in 2020, we did have a successful alternate day camp this past summer for 2021 and the Music Guild supported that to the tune of $10,000. Our membership drive earlier in the year was quite successful in raising funds (thank you again for everyone that contributed!) and we had the take out “Taco Tuesday” over the summer that raised additional support.
For future events we are having our pie sale and then we are looking to do our annual pasty sale. We are cooking up some more ideas to add to our repertoire and to take the place of some other traditional events like “Big Boy Night” (at least temporarily). But we can always use new ideas and participating members.
We have changed our regular meeting night to the second Monday of each month at 7:00pm and we invite anyone that is interested to stop in the Church Parlor for our next meeting. Any questions let Craig (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Julie Sleeman (email@example.com) know. We would love to see you!
At Royal Oak First, Children’s Choirs are the number one place for our kids to connect, grow, and serve from pre-k through fifth grade.
