Thanks for making talent show a success

On behalf of the Jamestown Community Chorus I am writing to express our thanks to everyone who had a part in the success of our 22nd annual talent show.

We are most appreciative of the support and participation of so many, including all who auditioned and all who performed in the show; everyone who came out to see it; all who bought the more than 2,000 raffle tickets we sold and all our ticket sellers; Mc- Quade’s Marketplace and Jamestown Hardware for sharing space for raffle stations; the merchants and locations who displayed our flyers; Jill Goldstein and Bill Piva of the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department for use of the rec center and sound equipment, and for displaying our banner; and Sav Rebecchi for video in the Jamestown Record.

Also, Agnes Filkins, Laura Yentsch and Tim Yentsch for selling tickets at the door; Ken Greene for creating the flyer and all businesses and locations who displayed it; Ellie Chase for decorations; Jim Perry for the banner and street sign; Mark Male for backstage help; Dianne Reilly for refreshment donations and coordination; the Classical Gals at WRIU for promotions on the air; the Jamestown Press staff for keeping the show and auditions in the paper each week during the summer; Margo Sullivan for her article and photos in the Jamestown Press; Jim Munro for the many Walrus columns featuring the talent show; and Selena Millard from the South County Independent for photographing the auditions.

Many thanks to you all.

Rehearsals for our upcoming season start Monday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Central Baptist Church on 99 Narragansett Ave. No auditions are required – just a love of singing. All voices are welcome. Our Dec. 11 concert will feature selections from “The Messiah” and a chamber orchestra.
