Because of continued threat of COVID infection, this singing was held outdoors under the trees, despite the threat of rain.
In fact, this year, the food for DOG was presented indoors to avoid any sudden downpours. Most singers ate lunch outside.
It was wonderful to sing again and visit with singers after the two-year hiatus!
