Annual Show
-

(Charlie Church)


1)


We continue to search for corporate sponsors for the annual show.


For $500, a
corporate s
ponsor gets lots of exposure in our media advertising, posters, flyers, and
printed program.


Feel free to reach out to potential corporate sponsors and get with
Jerry Huetz or Charlie Church when details need to be firmed up.


It costs nothing to
ask!



2
)


A few openings are yet to be filled in the annual show staffing.


We're looking for a
Technical Director,

Poster Distribution chair, and an Emcee.


Please contact

Charlie Church if you would be willing to fill one of these positions.



3)


Ad sales co
ntinue.


Dan Blouin will be giving us a status tonight.


We all like to
hear a good story
-

tell us tonight about a success Ad sale that you had within the
past week.


And a reminder that we're asking each chapter member to sell at least
two Ads.


Again, i
t costs nothing to ask.




Ad Sales (Dan Blouin)

Gents, we have approximately six weeks to get all the ads in to Denis Brochu (Due
date April 26
th
). Please plan ahead now to make contact to whom you will approach
for the ads you will sell. I made it a poin
t this week to visit the four places where I
normally sell ads and now I can concentrate on tickets sales. Please don’t wait the
last minute.



Bel Canto (Pat Heise)

The second installment of the Bel Canto article by Debra Lynn is in the new issue of
the H
armonizer.


If you haven't already received it, you should shortly.


Hello Mary Lou (Greg Morrill)

I'd like to borrow about 10 copies of Hello Mary Lou for use by the local community
chorus I'm directing.


I plan

to have the men in the chorus perform this
song.


If you
are willing to lend your copy, please write your name on it and give it to me at
rehearsal.


Thanks for your help.

IBMers, Retired IBMers

(Marian Lawlor)

2011 has been designated IBM's Centennial year. (I think we could have chosen a
number o
f years for our centennial, but this is the one Sam Palmisano picked.) We're
planning on a low
-
key celebration at IBM on June 14 and June 16 with 2 2
-
hour
receptions / events each day (2
-
4pm and 8
-
10pm) to give IBMers a chance to learn
about what other par
ts of IBM in BTV do. We'll be asking the IBM bands to play and,
after seeing the Green Mountain Chorus Saturday night, I thought it might be fun to
ask some of the IBM retirees in the group (and others if interested) to sing some of
the old IBM songs. Ther
e's even an online collection of IBM Music:

Let

Greg know if there would be interest from a barbe
rshop quartet or the GMC in
participating. THANKS!
