Summer Scratch Choir
Throughout June, July and August all are invited to see what it’s like to sing in the choir. The Summer Scratch Choir will meet Sundays at 9:45 am to rehearse hymns and service music – easy anthems and lots of support from regular choristers. No experience necessary! Contact Wayne Rogers, 429-1680, or just show up Sunday morning.
