The first time I walked through the doors of the Free Masons Hall and heard Alberta Heartland Chorus sing their contest ballad, I thought I had gone to Heaven early, and was hearing an angelic choir. My first thought was "Could I ever be part of something as wonderful as this"? I was placed in the lead section and in no time at all had passed my audition to become part of this fun loving, talented group of women whose desire is to spread joy through their love of singing.
During my time with the chorus, I have had opportunity to serve as Social Chair for a couple of years, a position I enjoyed very much as I love to see that people are getting enough to eat. I have also always tried to lend a hand wherever I see the need. That is why I am so looking forward to this next chapter of putting some of my other talents to use. In the past, I have held leadership positions in the church. I have enjoyed writing and public speaking engagements, and have often been seen as a good listener and someone with problem solving skills.
I have also enjoyed the experiences of being the mom to three children, the grandma to five and the great grandma to two. In my retirement years I enjoy a quiet life with my husband Kasey, in our lovely 4 plex home in Spruce Grove, where I enjoy my hobbies of quilting and home decorating, and of course singing.
I am anticipating that my time on the management team will be another fun filled experience in my life which will also cause me to grow in who I am.
