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

SxS fire trucks

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!

We had a holly jolly time yesterday at Side by Side Singing for Christmas at Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, NC.

Debbie, Jan and I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday and a very happy New Year.
