There were 25 singers before dinner.
The new space is very good for singing: thanks to St James for allowing us to use it; and to Joe Holbert for securing it.

Thanks to all the friends who traveled long distances to sing with us.

The day started sunny and mild, but ended stormy, wet and cold.

Minutes, thanks to Dan Huger.
