A Grand Time was had by All

Some of us were marching around the Parish Hall to “When the Saints Go Marching In” and some were shaking their tambourines — but we were ALL singing “side by side.” We hope you will come sing with us the next two Thursdays at 2pm, July 27 and August 3, at Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, North Carolina.

We had a ‘hot time’ at Side by Side Singing yesterday

There we were, singing at the top of our lungs, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” and — smelling smoke! We left the Parish Hall in an orderly fashion. Volunteers carried out chairs and music. Jan Mallindine had her guitar with her — so we barely missed a beat. We set up the chairs in the shade and kept right on singing “Side by Side.” It turns out it was just an overheated air conditioning system that was causing the smoke, so we will be back singing next Thursday, July 20, 2pm at Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, NC.

Side by Side Singing in the news

In case you haven’t seen it yet, there is a nice article about Side by Side Singing in the July 2017 issue of Bold Life magazine by Sarah Hart.¬†http://www.boldlife.com/back-to-the-ballgame/

There is also an article in July 9, 2017 issue of Hendersonville Times-News entitled, “Side by Side Singing connects patients, caregivers” by Sean Patrick Smith. We love this article — but want to remind you that Side by Side Singing is for EVERYONE who wants to come sing with us, and that our singing sessions are for one hour (not 90 minutes).

Side by Side Singing will be on Thursdays from 2- 3 July 13, 20, 27 and August 3, 2017 at Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, NC. We hope you will COME SING WITH US!
