Side by Side Singing in Fletcher Off to a Great Start!

Birds were not the only ones singing on Friday, April 10 in Fletcher. Over 60 Side by Side Singers gave rousing renditions of songs such as: Take Me Out to the Ballgame, Oh What  Beautiful Morning, Do-Re-Me, This Land is Your Land and Sentimental Journey. Our host, Calvary Episcopal Church, provided refreshments for our socializing afterwards.

We will be singing again each Friday afternoon, from 2 – 3 pm, through and including Friday May 15. As always these sessions are FREE. You do not need to be an experienced singer or able to read music to fully participate.

WHERE: Calvary Episcopal Church on Hendersonville Highway (also known at Highway 25) and Old Airport Road in Fletcher. We sing in the Parish Hall. Ample parking in two lots — one in front of the Parish Hall (this entrance is handicap accessible) and the other behind the Parish Hall.

Side by Side for the Holidays

Jingle bells were rung, and carols were sung at the Carillon Care Center on December 10, as song leaders Jan Mallindine, Beth Mallindine and Ruthie Rosauer led residents and non-residents in Christmas songs. There were SIXTY SEVEN singers! That’s a lot of holiday cheer! The next Side by Side for the Holidays will be Wednesday, December 17 at 1:30 — also at Carillon.¬†DSC03268
