The following is a delightful message from Helen Woodhouse-Herrick from Sing Australia Nhill.
"A few of us from Sing Australia Nhill Group are at the Nhill Railway Station singing Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’ as the Overland Train rolls into Nhill Station and saying goodbye to Angela from Southampton UK who has been singing with us for the month as she has been in Nhill on holiday with her sister Sue. We are only a small group but I must say our Leader Mrs Fran Bone and husband Jock are a great couple who keep the musical nights weekly continuing here in our little town Nhill."
Comment: Thank you Helen. So lovely to receive your little article and photo. What a nice gig. Lots of fun. Big thanks to Jock and Fran for their continued and incredible contribution. Happy New Year to you all. ...
Happy New Year to you and Margaret. Here are some of the scenes at our volunteers lunch on Saturday 13 January (thankfully in a hired venue given the 42 degree day). Our invitation list with the team and our accompanists and conductors was over 50, and 41 were able to enjoy the afternoon. It is the team's way to say thank you to this committed group, get some feedback from our key helpers, and have a good sing too (for over an hour in total, including the men leading Cwm Rhonda). We had Pam and John celebrating their 56th wedding anniversary too which we all made very special for them - we all sang their song choice: "If you were the only girl in the world".
Best wishes for a great year.
Comment: Thanks for your good wishes Colleen. Such a great idea and lovely gesture to have a special event to thank your volunteers. May we add our thanks as well. A big part of the Sing Australia success is contribution of volunteers. Happy New Year to you all. ...
