Will and Tony beautifully delivered the Irish Blessing today to a grieving Barbara Greer at the memorial service for Dale who died early this summer. We were able to get Barb to reminisce about their long love which started at Alma College. Keep her in your thoughts. She is very alone, a sad state in the shadows of a long life of service. xoxo

Oh my goodness! Petoskey seems to be the charm. Earlier this summer we were delighted to see Sean Galloway Diana Galloway and their daughter Lyric on the Bay View beach and tonight we were crossing the street from our cottage on M-31 near the Bay View Inn in Petoskey to see the sunset and heard a horn toot. Didn't think anything of it but we saw a car and out popped Elijah Woolcott, all kilted up returning from a gig in Harbor Springs. (This boy/man is all about the pipes!!). Alma College Choir alums are EVERYWHERE! Will and I continue to be delighted with these unexpected meetings with kids (now adults, of course) who have made an impact on us as they made their way through Alma College. To connect with them in the next phase(s) of their lives is a bonus. Thank you! xoxo

A choir mom’s post——Our son Wilson is an Alma Choir/Alma College alum. He and several of his Alma friends gathered at our home this past weekend. There was a lot of reminiscing about Choir, Alma College, Alma Public Schools and life. Will and I are delighted that they will interrupt their busy lives to come to Turk Lake. These kiddos are making a difference in our world. It gives me hope! xoxo

Cosmic cool happening today. Will and I did a quick trip to Bay View in Petoskey to check on our cottage and see our grandsons (and their parents). "The Doc" played tennis this morning and needed to cool off afterwards so we went to the Bay View beach. I was waiting for my swimmer in the parking lot and I heard this lovely interchange between what I surmised was a young dad and his daughter. We were getting ready to pull away when Sean Galloway greeted us with incredulity. He was the totally invested dad!! What fun to see him and little Lyric. Diana and Ivy (I hope I spelled it right) were going to join them later. This is the kind of kismet that we experience all the time with Alma Choir alums. I regret I didn't take a photo and that we didn't see the other half of the family. Enjoy your summer, all, and if you are near Greenville, please stop and see us! Looking forward to another year of singing, come September! xoxo

We're having a great time! After out service at Moorings Pres. Church, we had time for lunch and the pool! After our concert, we caught the tail end of the sunset. Monday was a free day on Marco Island which many choir members enjoyed at the ocean. A visit to the Everglades to see the wildlife took Tuesday morning and this afternoon, we are relaxing in Ft. Myers. Take a look at some of our pictures!

Dear Alma Choir Alums: Please let me ask if five or six of you will send a "get well" card to Mrs. Greer, who has suffered a serious stroke and is in need of some cheering up! Many of you will remember the Greers and all the wonderful things they did for the Alma Choirs through the years from showing up at our concerts all over the country, to taking hundreds of photos for us, and most recently giving an Alma Choir pin to all choir seniors! If you can send her a card in the next few days, please let me know by posting a promise here. You can write to her at:
Mrs. Barbara Greer
955 Iowa Street
Alma, MI 48801

Thanks!! You all are the best!

It has been a wonderful past couple of days relaxing before heading back to the states. After performing in Glasgow the choir moved on to Edinburgh to make a full circle trip. We had high tea and sang in St. Giles Cathedral for our last concert, and needless to the say the seniors had a hard time not crying during Highland Cathedral. The choir heads out tomorrow at 6am, more pictures to come!
Thank you to everyone who supported this trip and to the kids for being such troopers on this tour. Stay tuned for more pictures!

The choir enjoyed the past 2 days off in Aberdeen where we shopped and slept and explored the beautiful city.
Yesterday we had a very emotional concert in St. Andrew's as it was the seniors last full concert and there were many tears singing Highland Cathedral. But, before the concert the choir got to explore St. Andrew's, while some saw the magnificent cathedral, others shopped in town and a brave few decided to golf with Tony!
After the concert everyone piled into the coach and we journeyed to Glasgow, where today we sang in the Glasglow Cathedral and we even saw Tyler Joel and his mom, so glad you could make it Tyler! Now on to more exploring in Glasglow.
