Fleurieu Harmony have had had quite a mixed month starting with a septet from the chorus entertaining at the 90th birthday of  an old member of the Festival Statesmen, Martin Fruend ,who although incapacitated, remembered and seemed to enjoy the Polecats we sung.

We did a fundraising singout at the local markets and raised $220 for our favourite charity “Prostate Cancer Research”. The next week we sung the Irish Blessing at the funeral of our ex member 92 year old Stan Newton. Stan was a valuable member of the lead section and was a member from the very early days and retired about 3 years ago. We were pleased to have a visit from our old friend Kim Sebbage  who is always welcomed with his helpful observations and hints. This week we were part of the Adelaide Eisteddfod and although not winning any prizes, acquitted ourselves really well competing against the youngsters in the school choirs.

Now we are looking forward to the Nationals, that for the first time are being in our home state, it will be great to welcome and meet up again with all our interstate brothers and sisters.
