Happy Easter, everyone!


Celebrating renewals March 5 were these three from the lead section, Lee Freie, Jack Ray and Steve Nelson.

  • Normal chorus rehearsal 6:30 Tuesday
  • Contest Chorus rehearsal: 6 p.m in Iowa City 

Ad sales continue:

An achievable goal for each of us it to contact each of our last year’s customers before rehearsal Tuesday. Deliver the ad letter and 2024 Contract. We should not delay this so that our customers have a full month to respond. Next week you can look for new customers. If you need help with making these contacts, just ask.
