The "early" September Singing Report

The September's 2nd Sunday singing at the Shiloh Museum was as early in the month as a 2nd Sunday can ever get! The Shiloh Singers of NW Arkansas enjoyed a good turnout on a fine Sunday afternoon on September 8th in the General Store at the Shiloh Museum in Springdale.

The singers also made a joyful noise at the August 11th singing. We had 19 singers and visitors who sang or listened during the August session. You'll also notice in the photo that the boxes used to store our loaner books were just about empty. We opened the doors, turned up the fans, (electric and hand-powered) and really had a good time singing. I hope you can join us and bring a friend or two this Sunday.

Photo: Even with 19 singers and visitors, we still had room for more singers and more visitors. All the parts were well covered. We are in the process of ordering more books for the October 25th Friday evening Singing School and the NWA Fall Singing Convention on Saturday, October 26. We'll try to update everyone on the details on Sunday, but go ahead and mark the events on your October calendar. We'll also post more details on the web page as they become available.

One more thing... We'll also had the usual optional gatherings:  Those who enjoy chicken on Sunday are invited to join us at AQ's Chicken House in Springdale "around noon." Ask the staff at the cashier's desk for the singers and they'll point you in the right direction. The singers who prefer their Sunday dessert after the singing are also invited to join us at the Denny's in Springdale for pie and coffee or ice cream to soothe the throat after a full afternoon of old fashioned singing. Both are opportunities to enjoy the fellowship of other singers, share ideas and catch up on what other singers have been doing. We all enjoy the singing but it's the singers that make our Sunday afternoon singings so very special. All singers and visitors are always invited and we hope your Sunday schedule will allow you to attend one or all of the events

Hope to see you at our next 2nd Sunday singing.
