The next scheduled Church In Haliburton event will take place at St. George’s Anglican church at 7pm on Wednesday, November 22nd. For this “mostly music” service, St. George’s organist and choir director, Bill Gliddon, has invited any members of our churches or the wider community to join together as a massed choir. There will be three rehearsals at St. George’s on Thursdays – November 2nd, 9th and 16th from 7:30 to 8:15 pm. Music will be provided. Ability to read music is helpful but not necessary. Just come and enjoy being in a choir. Please plan to attend at least 2 or 3 of the rehearsals. It would be helpful if you could let your pastor or church secretary know how many are planning to be in the choir, and they could let Jennifer know at St. George’s office (705 457 2074) by the end of October so adequate preparations can be made for seating and music. All are welcome to come and praise our Lord in music together. – Bill Gliddon
