Gospel choir to perform in Newport
For over 25 years the Delco Mass Choir of Delaware County, Pa. has been presenting gospel music concerts and delighting audiences across the country. The Choir will make its annual appearance in Newport on Saturday, June 14 in a program to honor the late Jean E. Hicks, who was the executive director of New Visions for Newport County from 1987 to her death in January 1994.
The concert will be sponsored by East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) and Hicks will be honored by the social service agency she supported for more than 20 years. Hicks was the catalyst behind the development of the New Visions health center, and led the campaign to raise $1.3 million to secure the agency's permanent home at 19 Broadway, Newport.
The concert will be at 7 p.m. at the Community Baptist Church, 50 Marcus Wheatland Blvd.
There is no admission fee for the concert, but a free will offering will be taken during the concert to support the Jean E. Hicks Memorial Health Center which provides medical and dental services to thousands of Newport County and East Bay residents who may be uninsured or underinsured.
