CMT Highlights - July 2012

posted Jul 17, 2012, 11:47 AM by Unknown user
The July meeting of the CMT was held during an enjoyable beach retreat that took place the weekend of the 13th and 14th. Amongst our eating, socializing, playing games, walking the beach, shopping and concert going, some serious CMT business took place :) Here are the highlights:
1)   The Area School is quickly approaching (Sept 7-8). If you have not yet indicated whether you plan to attend or not, please contact Klea and let her know. More info will follow about Hotel recommendations, for members who will be spending the night.
2)   April Show venue - We are requesting chorus recommendations for possible venues for our April 2013 Show. Ideally the site would allow for the cabaret style of show that we did last December, but we would like it to accomodate a larger audience. The Salem area is preferred, but all ideas are welcome. Please contact any member of the CMT if you know of a possible location.
3)   Advance Retreat - Lori M. and Klea have been working very hard on planning our 2013 Advance, scheduled for February 23-24. They are going to be signing the contract with the Riverbend Resort in Eugene at the end of this month and need an accurate count of how many are planning to attend. Please reply to the e-mail sent out by Klea earlier this month. It sounds like a great location!
4)   Step up and volunteer! - Judy Kroll is still seeking that perfect person or persons who would like to serve as Membership Chair(s). This is a fun way to get to know the new visitors and members through welcoming them, and following up on their new membership applications, etc. This job has also been know to induce smiling and laughter - both strongly recommemded by the surgeon general as means to promote a more healthful life! Contact Judy if interested. Or...Do you like to scrapbook?  We are in the process of retrieving the OSC Scrapbook that was lovingly cared for by Mickey Logan up until a year ago. We would like a current member to take over as OSC Historian, with responsibilities to include updating and maintaining this book of chorus memories. Please contact Judy about becoming membership chair, or Diana H. about taking over as the new Historian if you are able to help us out!
5)   Upcoming Fun Contest!!! - Get your creative thinking caps on and watch your e-mail for details about an upcoming chorus contest! There will be a fabulous prize awarded to the winner, as well as long-term notariety and the love and admiration of your fellow chorus members. Who could ask for more?
