While Danny Petersheim is away at BMA Bible School for 6 weeks, Marcus Fox is back to fill the baritone position. The Garment of Praise had a few warm-ups with him, but he fit right back in well with the group. Those old hymns they do on the fly work out pretty good with Marcus there.
We had quite a number of programs and banquets scheduled for over Danny’s absence, so Marcus will be filling in a total of 6 programs.
Pleasantview Retirement Community–where the old folks enjoy the music, and others come in from the outside to hear the program also. Afterwards a group of 4 brothers serenaded us, a couple with Brian playing piano, and a number without.
It’s also nice to have the extra children along for Brian’s and Daryl’s to play with.
Sweetheart Banquet at Yoder’s Banquet Facilities–all the ladies were privileged to go along.
Life Ministries Banquet at Shady Maple Banquet Facilities–Ryan came along with his dad, Marcus, on this one.
Programs ahead with Marcus before Danny returns: Mohrsville Church of the Brethren on March 20, 2010 at 7:30 pm
Derry Mennonite Church in Danville, Pa on March 21, 2010 at 7:00 pm
Camp Andrews Banquet at Yoder’s Banquet Facilities on March 23, 2010 at 6:15 pm (if interested in attending, reserve a spot)
Also, coming up is the Fairview Christian School alumni concert, led by Brian Fox and held at Bethany Grace Fellowship, across from Terre Hill Mennonite High School, on March 28, 2010, at 7:00 pm.
Danny returns April 9, 2010, and will be singing with the quartet at the April 11th program at Blue Ball at 7:00 pm.
Brian Fox, as the choir director of Fairview Christian School chorus for the last 15 years, is calling for all alumni to join in a FCS reunion concert. They have been blessed over the years with many good times singing, as they prepared for Christmas programs, Spring programs, and Conventions. Their goal is to get together as many alumni as they can to sing some of the old songs.
Alumni: There will be three rehearsals:
March 14, Sunday afternoon 3:00-5:00 pm at Fairview Christian School
March 25, Thursday evening 7:00-9:00 pm at Fairview Christian School
March 28, Sunday afternoon 3:00-5:00 pm at Grace Bethany Fellowship
(finger foods will follow the practice, prior to the program the same evening)
Please bring a 3-ring binder to put printed music into. Music will be handed out at each practice.
Everyone: You are invited to come and enjoy as they share old video footage and also recreate those groups in the present. The concert will be on Sunday, March 28, 2010, 7:00 pm, at Grace Bethany Fellowship, located across from Terre Hill Mennonite High School.
