Revelstoke has lost one of its premiere attractions and it’s a damn shame we no longer have a Seniors’ Choir.
Since the passing of Marg Stovel, no one has stepped forward to take her place; big shoes to fill, indeed, but without someone to tickle the ivories for the Seniors’ Center there is no award-winning choir anymore. The spirit of long-time musical director Margaret McMahon is bemoaning the loss.
Surely there is somebody in this fine burg with the keyboard capabilities to fill our community’s need?
Yes, it is a volunteer position like so many other important posts in Revelstoke.
If you can help, contact the Revelstoke Seniors’ Association at 250-837-9456 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
