To All Valentiners - congratulations, and thank you!

An outstanding day of "sharing the love" in song and cheer!

Well done, Chelsea, for your indefatigable effort and gift of expertise!



The looks of embarrassment, stunned surprise and sincere appreciation by the recipients of the Valentines, their joyful tears and affectionate hugs, will linger on for everyone who participated in this fundraiser. I'm sure there are many stories to be shared with our colleagues and friends this coming Monday. 

As we briefly discussed on the road, perhaps those stories merit an opportunity to celebrate after Monday's rehearsal... ?

Well done, everyone, and thank you for a fun and thoroughly successful day!

I'll update the results once some photos start rolling in and the figures are tallied.
