Walkers, come enjoy the beautiful fall morning and walk for a wonderful cause:  Helping to bring Music to the Lives of our Children.   Join a team if you like:  Do you (or did you) play an instrument? Join the Orchestra’s team!…  A fan of singing?  Join one of the Chorus’s teams in honor of alto Mary Ellen Stiegemeier or in memory of bass Robert Bedell.  Join Peg Holzgrafe’s Team walking/running in memory of Mary Ann Middendorf…or make a team of your own and encourage as many of your friends to participate as possible.  The goal of these fun teams is to have the most members!
