Hello to my following base of...15? And to all of you who tell me you read the blog, but aren't subscribed (you should subscribe, because that's how you get updates, I don't send them). This should be short and sweet today because I don't have any deep thought provoking messages to convey.
This coming Sunday at 2pm at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Congregation (the Huntington Street building), a benefit concert titled Virtuoso Music for Viola da Gamba and Harpsichord is being held by John and Barbara Metz. Last year they performed a benefit concert as well, and though I wasn't here at the time, I have heard wonderful reviews! I also can safely assume that it is going to be beautiful because of the email responses I have received after sending our the flier stating "we will be there! can't wait!" and "count on me for at least 2 tickets!". Donations are requested; $15 for adults, $5 for students. To see them on Youtube follow this link: (click me! click me!). To view the full flier and to learn more about John and Barbara Metz before you come to the concert, follow this link: (now click me! I have great info!).
Before the concert, I'm hoping I can get some of you lovely people to help with a MAINTENANCE DAY!! With No Freeze on our hands and about 65 people in the shelter each night, we are in need of some serious cleaning; sanitizing, mopping, dusting, leaving the windows open to air it out for a couple hours...the typical maintenance.
We also need about 8 able bodied (and not afraid of heights!) volunteers to help us out at our new site on State Pier Rd. Before winter comes our way, we need to clean out the gutters of the new building and scrape the old paint off from around the window frames...both tasks involve using ladders. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Seriously, we do.
I now have a laptop with a dying battery, but I posted what needed to be said. So enjoy your Tuesday and email me at email@example.com if you can help or are just really excited about the concert.
