Membership renewal

Al Huneke, 2018 renewal

Returning last week for a brief exile to Canada (actually visiting grandkids), Al Huneke was recognized for his 13 years of membership in the chorus and the society. Al sings baritone with the chorus and in the Profound Sound quartet, and has served as Board Member at Large, and since 2015 as Treasurer.

In the photo Al is saying, “No matter how bad a day I might have had, all is forgotten when I get to rehearsal. It’s always a good time!”
