Looking Back on the Aug. 10th 2021 Chapter Meeting
True to form for the chapter, the heavens dumped rain on Alexandria Tues. night. Aug. 10th just minutes before 7 pm. Not good for an outdoor rehearsal at Fort Ward Park in Alexandria.
So leaders sent an email to cancel. Many of us were anticipating that so kept an eye on our phones for a message. And the old timers were especially ready for bad weather in lieu of the many times in our chapter’s past that we got rained out for Fort Ward events.
Of course, some folks were on their way like Mike Fasano and Mike Edison who were driving from DE. They came on to VA and joined a good crowd of guys who went to the Harmo House to start the afterglow early. Actually some guys had missed dinner, so they were hungry.
Also the riser crew and sound crew was ready at 6:30 but fortunately had not set up anything. So they too headed for the Harmo House.
Mark your calendars for a mini performance for friends and family on Tues. Aug. 24th at Fort Ward. This event may include some food and fellowship.
YeEd received the following note to include in this week’s Looking Back report: A Remembrance Service for Sandy Stamps is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23 at 11am at the Fairfax United Methodist Church, 10300 Stratford Ave, Fairfax VA. The Harmonizers will sing “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” and “There Must Be A City.”
Our next Harmonizer Tuesday meeting will be at 7 pm on August 17th, 2021 at the Scottish Rite Temple.
Until next time – editorjack!
