Voices United choir helps Search and Rescue

As treasurer of Clearwater United Church, I got to write a cheque for $500.05 to the Wells Gray Search and Rescue group

Editor, The Times:

I am never too fond of writing big cheques but today it was a pleasure. First, it wasn’t my money, and secondly, it represents all that is fine about our valley. As treasurer of Clearwater United Church, I got to write a cheque for $500.05 to the Wells Gray Search and Rescue group.

The money is the proceeds from the Voices United Community Choir performance held Dec. 14 at the Baptist Church. Because they donate the performance space, and the Catholic congregation donates practice space and Clearwater United pays for all the associated costs of putting on a cantata, it means that every cent given for admission and the sale of DVDs is handed over to a deserving community group. This year we chose WGS&R, our neighbours who give so much of themselves when we need help.

Thank you, audience members for your generosity. Thank you, churches, for your support. Thank you singers for your beautiful voices.

We are a small congregation with a huge love of music. It is a joy to be able to continue giving this gift to the community.

Practices for the 2014 cantata will begin in October. If you, too, find joy in singing, please join us!
