Trip to Chicago

The CSS took to the air recently to travel to Chicago for their Thanksgiving weekend and the kick-off of the Christmas season which represents an increase in services to the poor and fund-raising for The Army. It was great to see Wendy go off in her role as the executive officer. I would have loved to have been in attendance but I stayed home to look after duties here.

The Staff Songsters

The CSS were in Hamilton this weekend. They are still in early days and their musical development is ongoing….just added bass and percussion to the team for example. They are also expanding their repertoire. It is amazing to me how many pieces they have memorized, and remember that they must learn both words and musical parts.

As well as listening to the CSS it struck me this past weekend, and has on other occasions, that people love to sing along! The song – He’s got the whole world in His hands – really got people singing! And the intent of this group was to get people to sing! Listen and tap your toes….and do you feel like singing along? I think you will.
