Hi Elgin Encores,
- Tomorrow is our dress rehearsal.It is just a normal rehearsal: wear PJs if you feel like it.
- Jackie has a message for you below.
- Reminder about the social before our Volunteer concert on the 25th.Likely to be Broadway Bar and Grill around suppertime. 5:15PM? Time TBD.
April 15th concert volunteers – Thanks to those who signed up! We might need one more person to help set up the cocktail food, when the concert bands are finished & while the jazz bands are playing. It would be between 4-5pm. Realize not everyone is probably staying but if you are, would you be willing to lend a hand please? We’re trying to get one or two people from each band so you may not be needed if there’s already a small army:) Email Jackie – firstname.lastname@example.org
