Name Tags
Once again, we are asking all members to wear name tags to help everyone learn the names.  Name tags can be picked up each evening in front foyer and returned to the table after choir each night.  We hope this will help everyone get to know each other.

Fragrance Free and Water Bottles
-We encourage the use of reusable water containers at practice.  Please, water only in the sanctuary.
-Thank you, men and women, for avoiding fragrances.  For health and breathing reasons, the Canadian Choral Federation, the BC Choral Federation, and Eclectica have a fragrance-free policy.  The United Church is also a "fragrance free" zone.
