BREAKING NEWS -- Shiloh Singers have Outdoor Singing on Sunday, June 12

 BREAKING NEWS  -- Shiloh Singers have Outdoor Singing on Sunday, June 12

The Shiloh Singers of Northwest Arkansas will be conducting an open air singing in front of the Country Store on the grounds of the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History on Sunday afternoon, starting at 1:30 P.M. and concluding at 4:00 P.M. or whenever we run out of enough air to sing.  There will be a registration desk next to the vicinity of the front porch.  Due to the fact that Arkansas and much of the U.S. are still having new or reinfections of COVID-19, we will request that all the singers and their invited guests register, have a "none-touch" temperature check, sign-in with name and either phone number or E-mail address.  The email and phone numbers will allow future contacts with future newsletters and other events.  Each singer will also be asked to show their "COVID" shot record card.  Once registered and vaccinations verified, the singers will be issued a name tag, loaner books if needed, and directed to the singer's area in front of the store's porch.  Those with concerns about comorbidities are also invited to wear optional masks.  

Frequently, there are also other museum visitors on Sunday afternoons, families with children who want to take pictures of the museum barn, cabins and garden down the hill, and may wish to wander around the grounds on a nice Sunday afternoon. We will attempt to accommodate any visitors who want to stop and listen behind the singers and try to reserve the picnic tables for those visitors. The Country Store will be open and a number of metal folding chairs available. Singers may also bring folding lawn chairs which may be more stable on damp ground. In the event of rain, before or during the event, the singers may seek temporary shelter in the store or cancel the event if a hard rain is forecast.
