August Singing and October Singing School

Our next regular second Sunday singing will be August 12th from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the newly refurbished Shiloh Meeting Hall.

We usually meet at A.Q. Chicken at noon prior to our singings, but it's been suggested that this month we try Western Sizzlin.  Unless I hear otherwise, let's plan on meeting there at noon.  The address listed online is 4900, 3492 W Sunset Ave, Springdale, AR 72762. It's just down the street from the Denny's where some of us meet after singings.

If you received the Newsletter Extra this month, you know that a local nursing home has offered us an opportunity to come sing with their residents.  Here's B.R.'s note about it from the newsletter extra:
"My request is that all of you bring your smart phone calendars and equally smart thinking caps to next Sunday's singing and see if there are two or three possible dates that would work for a "Sacred Harp Singing as a Community Service" visit to the Springdale Health and Rehab Center. On previous occasions we've held our regular 2nd Sunday singing at the Museum and then left a little early to drive over the a local retirement center for about an hour of singing. We have not committed to singing in Oklahoma this September, so that date might be convenient. In any case, please let me know"
So, let's see if we can work something out for September or October, and if we can't find something that works this fall, perhaps we can look at dates later in the year.

Looking a couple of months into the future, after our regular singings on September 9th and October, 14th, we'll have Fall Singing School on October 26th  from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. followed by our Singing Convention on October 27th from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. with a potluck at noon. Both will be held at the Shiloh Meeting Hall. More details to follow in the coming months.

Hope to sing with you all soon!
