Fine Session

The Fine session was a singing session with Ear Candy but don't think most of us should quit our day jobs for singing careers

Special Fines and Happy Dollars

Musical program presented by Ear Candy, a local singing group who have been together for 5 years.
There are 3 singers and an accompanist,Joyce Collins, Wynne Marsh, Stephanie Jass and Margaret Hyle.
The group supports the Lenawee Humane Society and asked that proceeds from a collection at the meeting be donated to the Society in payment for their performance.
Some of the selections we enjoyed were: opening our meeting with a wonderful version of the Star Spangled Banner and then for the program they sang some World War II songs including Chattanooga Train, Bugle Boy, and a medley of songs about girls that need to cry or not.
