First rehearsal for Christmas Concert

Thirty-plus turned out for the first rehearsal for Jeannine's 10th anniversary of founding and directing the group. Here we are getting the requisite paperwork out of the way with the help of Glynda and Jule.



Jeannine explains the fine points of one of the new numbers...



...and then we plunge ahead and tackle the piece...



...with good results under the exceptional direction of Jeannine and the able assistance of accompanist Tara.



Well, people who missed our first rehearsal -- Snoopy was there, so why weren't you??? But it's not too late to join us. We'll be there next Monday again at 7:30pm and all are welcome to attend and share the fun we have and feel the deep sense of accomplishment we enjoy!

Fall Season Starts with Splash

Rehearsals start Monday, August 20th, so to kick off the season, the Koldens hosted another pool party on a beautiful 88 degree and sunny summer day.

Chuck the Elder and Glynda toss the beanbags...



Sitting in the shade by the pool was a popular pastime...







...but Pat and Chuck actually dove into action...



Always plenty of delicious food, and always tons of desserts for this hungry crew.



Barb took the group to "On Kolden Pond" and fed the catfish for us. Guess what she feeds them -- yup, really -- cat food!





As usual, Barb's dogs joined the party and stole the show...
