MATTRESS FUNDRAISER How many flyers have you handed out? Need more? They're on top of the cubbies by the door. Remember: someone you know personally is looking to replace a mattress! Ask friends, work colleagues, church friends, doctors/dentists (and their assistants!)...find your person!
Group performance times are now set as follows: 10:30 Bellissima 11:30 Estetica 1:30 Women's Choir 2:30 Choral Union 3:30 Men's Choir 4:00 Chamber Chorale
I went with the time that worked best for the whole department as well as by group. Now that you know times, please try to adjust your schedules that day so that you can be there with your group.
Remember, the target for each of us is to sell one mattress to someone. I've sold at LEAST one. Can you say the same? If not, start asking.

The Unsung Hero is someone who has selflessly gone above and beyond to help, inspire and be a positive example.
This week's hero is Abel Ahumada, who sings in Men's Choir. Abel constantly looks out for the rest of the men in the group, and is always trying his best to be helpful... with his fun sense of humor, he is truly indispensable!
