Thank you to all of our guests.  The Chorus appreciates all of you.

Visit from a Founding Member!

Alberta (Allie) Kay is a Charter and Founding Member of the London Chorus.  The Chorus was founded in 1954 and Allie sang with the Chorus prior to it being chartered with Sweet Adelines.  We are so grateful that she and her singing sisters started this wonderful Chorus for us to sing in today.

Allie came out to visit us on Wednesday with her son and daughter-in-law.  The Chorus and quartets Imagine That and Everyday People provided entertainment.

Allie recently celebrated her 100th birthday!  Singing keeps you young!

Twas the Month Before Christmas Show

We held a successful show on Saturday November 25th with our guests, the Forest City Fire Men's Chorus.

There were seasonal favourites performed by the Chorus and 2 of our Quartets:  Short & Sweet,  Venture and Imagine That.  Our guest enjoyed cookies and refreshments at a reception following the performance.

Merry Christmas!

Happy 100th Birthday Agnes!

The Chorus celebrated Agnes' 100th birthday at her party in Chatham and by purchasing a commemorative brick in her honour at the Sweet Adelines International Headquarters.

We are so blessed to have Agnes continue to be an Associate Member with the Chorus.  It was a blast to have her join us to sing the Irish Blessing in front of over 100 friends and family at her party.

Celebrating Jackie's success

On of our members, Jackie Buttnor, competed on the Canadian Team for the 2017 Invictus Games held in Toronto.  The Invictus Games were established 3 years ago by Prince Harry as a means of rehabilitation and friendly competition for wounded warriors.  Jackie is now retired from the Canadian Armed Forces which gives her time for her training and singing with our Sweet Adeline Chorus.

During the games Jackie participated in three events:  Powerlifting, Rowing and Wheelchair Rugby.  

She won the SILVER MEDAL in Womens Powerlifting!
