Thank you to all the ladies who helped with the show: Margee Burke, Joan D’Elia, Regina Desvernine, Eileen Ferguson, Linda Gurzo, Dee Kiley, Kittie Revello, Ella Sorino, and myself. I’d like to extend a personal thank you to Linda for being my replacement Friday evening to help with the stage decorations. We may be a small group but, without a doubt, we certainly can make a lot happen.
The Oceanettes got a helping hand from the Oceanaires not only singing at Boscov’s the day of their "Friends Helping Friends" event but also by buying Shopping Passes. They kicked off this project for us by purchasing $185.00 worth of the $5.00 Discount Cards. A large group of singers showed up to entertain the shoppers at Boscov’s: Don Albanese, Barry Burke, Desi Desvernine, Jim Donohue, John Farrell, Bob Featheringham, Bill Fuschetto, Joe Gurzo, Dave Kessler, Al Kiley, Joe Mack, Rick Revello, Rob Sorino, Vic Lido, Walter Trevaskis and Al Wagner. Thank you, gentlemen, for being on our side. The ladies who gave their time also deserve our thanks: Margee Burke, Joan D’Elia, Regina Desvernine, Dee Kiley and Kittie Revello. A special thank you to Ella Sorino who co-ordinated with Boscov’s for us. We hope you all had some fun at the mall. This project earned over $500.00 for our treasury. Congratulations!
A lot of us attended the District Contest in Wildwood. I’m sure the Oceanaires will write about the contest. On a lighter side, we hope the guys enjoyed surprising Ritchie with their red socks. At the Afterglow, the Oceanettes handed out gift bags to the quartets who came to sing for us. It was great to have the opportunity to chat with them and to hear them sing up close and personal. Naturally the evening ended with the clean- up. Thanks to everyone who stayed to help. The next contest will be May 15-16 in Cherry Hill. See you then!
