Hosta la Vista party

Hi Folks,

We’re having our annual ( even though we missed last year!) Hosta la Vista party, where we divide up our hostas and give them away.

It is this coming Sunday May 22nd from 2 to 4pm. Rain or shine.

Come for a glass of wine and a few snacks and help yourself to some plants.

If you’d like to bring something from your garden, that’s fine but not necessary. No ground cover please.

Anything in a plastic bag that is around the light standard is for the taking.

If you bring something, place it on the BBQ pit deck.

one more

Hi folks,

We have one more to do and that’s it.

Thanks for your hard work.

Remember our party tonight at the Holiday Inn.

Even if you haven’t played in the show and are still up at 1030! Come by and join us.

At the end of tonight, firstly, please remove all of your personal gear and vacate your equipment from the pit as soon as possible.

I must return all the chairs to the little theatre for Sunday morning church service. Your help with moving chairs, dismantling lights and taking equipment back to the music room would be greatly appreciated.

After show party on Saturday

Hi folks,

Susan LeBaron has booked the Holiday Inn for our get together after the Saturday show.

The kitchen is open to midnight and there is plenty of parking.

There is no band playing that night so it should be quiet, unless you all want to run through Act One again!

Also, there will be no show next week.

It’s all over on Saturday.

Looking forward to opening night tonight.

Stay on your toes. Some of the kids may be nervous and will require extra direction and musical attention from us.
