Singing at the General Store on June 9th...
Thanks to Gail Cowart for making the easy-to-read sign and a special mounting bracket to allow us to mount the new sign to the porch railing during our monthly singings without hooks or nails.
@Urban magazine for visiting our May singing. Marla interviewed several individual singers and the group during a break in the singing. She's working on an article for a future edition of the monthly magazine.

Thanks to Syd Caldwell, Holly Childs, Dan Brittain and most of all, Annie Grieshop, who has been working to update the list of Arkansas singings on the University of Mississippi Sacred Harp web pages. We've been updated and our web page is now on the list. Maintaining an accurate nationwide list of singing groups must be like herding cats! Thank you Annie!

One More Thing...
Syd wrote me a note and said he had a special announcement to make at this Sunday's singing. We're thankful that he no longer has to wear the special arm brace, but I think he's been doing some long range planning (again). He's one of our "sparkplugs" who helps keep our Sacred Harp engine running smoothly. We'll have more details after Sunday and in our next newsletter.
Hope you're looking forward to singing on Sunday too!
