Rehearsal tomorrow 20th Feb

Just a reminder there is a rehearsal tomorrow, 20th Feb.

We have a venue for a Spring Sing here in Toowoomba at the USQ theatre.  Anyone interested in stepping forward to form a committee to run through Pam Wilson’s list of things to do – which has been tested and proven!!  There will be time after the rehearsal to find out what is involved.  Many hands make light work – and a lovely way to get to know people better.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Warm regards, Lesley
