The first time I walked through the doors of the Free Masons Hall and heard Alberta Heartland Chorus singing their contest ballad, I thought I had gone to Heaven early and was hearing an Angelic choir. ( I have found out since, that we are not that.) And my first thought was, "Could I ever possibly be part of a singing group as wonderful as this"?
I was placed in the lead section and 3 wks. later passed my audition. I worked very hard to pass my first song and the first time I had to send in a recording I almost threw up. (Thank Goodness that is all past history.)
During the time I have been with the chorus I have had the opportunity to be social chair for a couple of years which I enjoyed very much as I love to see that people are getting lots to eat. I have also always tried to lend a hand whenever I saw 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 also have enjoyed the experiences of being the Mom to 3 children, the grandmother to 5, and the great grandma to 2.
For the last 6 years I have been enjoying a quiet life with my husband, Kasey, in our 4 plex hideaway in Spruce Grove, where I am often found in the the morning, singing in the living room, and at other times in the quilting room.
I consider the opportunity of serving on the management a pleasure. (probably at times, down right fun.) and I know it will cause me to grow in who I am.
