RB Chorale Visits to Entertain Us
Members of the RB Chorale came to our meeting and presented an enjoyable holiday program including a singalong.  One of their songs was an adaptation of Jingle Bells that they perform at the Safari Park.  It is tells the audience that many animals are digitigrade in that they stand and run on their toes. Digitigrade animals include elephants, cats and dogs
At the end of their program, President Mike Moffat and President-elect Bret Geernaert presented a check for $500 to RB Chorale Director, Pat Bean.  The donated funds will be used for their scholarship fund.
