Messiah Sing-Along on December 4th



I just wanted to let everyone know about a fantastic holiday opportunity coming up. On December 4th at 7 p.m. at PG High, I will be participating in the annual sing-along of Handel's Messiah. The PG Orchestra will be accompanying a community choir and some really great soloists and the audience is invited to sing along to the choir parts. I've heard that the house can get pretty packed--what a fun way to celebrate the season with your community! Of course, you don't have to sing along if you don't want to. And, truly, these soloists are sounding just wonderful. Hope to see some of you there!

Books Books and More Books


I love books. I love acquiring books but I do't always like to buy books especially when I have some that I would rather not have on my shelf. My solution...www.bookmooch.com. Here you can offer books that you want to send to someone else. When another person requests your book, you send it and receive points. Those points are then used to acquire books that you want.

It is free to use!!!

Statesmen Literature Discussions


We had a great discussion on "Common Sense". One question that was raised was "What can we do to effect change?" At times it can seem like we can't make a difference especially on the Federal level.

But we can make a difference. It starts in our own communities as we help lift each other and band together. And don't forget to vote today!!

Our next discussion will not be held till January 28th at 7:30. We will be discussing "The Crisis" by Thomas Paine...just the first one, but feel free to read them all.

You can read it at http://www.ushistory.org/PAINE/crisis/c-01.htm.
