Please consider helping out Mr.Hampton if you can............Some of you had the opportunity to host students from the Otterbein University Concert Choir earlier this year. Well, a similar opportunity has come up for this summer! The Cardinal Chorale, a statewide honors choir, will be performing at Lakewood Congregational Church on Tuesday, June 21 during their annual summer tour, and I have been tasked with finding host families for them. The group is made up of about 46 kids, ranging in age from 15-21. They are a friendly, kind, and enthusiastic group from all over the state of Ohio. Although hosting might seem like a big commitment, it's really not too involved! As a host family, you would need to provide transportation from the concert to your home, a place for at least two kids to sleep (sharing a bed is fine, and you could certainly host more than two if you are able), breakfast the next day, and transportation back to the church the next morning (about 9 am). I know that the families who hosted the Otterbein students in February had positive experiences, and knowing this group a little better, I am certain they will be just as much fun to host!
If you are interested in helping the Cardinal Chorale (and me) out by hosting, great! Just let me know how many students you would like to host, and any pets you might have (to avoid allergy issues), and I will be in contact. If you are unable to host, but would still like to hear their concert, the Cardinal Chorale will be performing at 7:30 pm on June 21st at Lakewood Congregational Church. Also, if you know of anyone else who may be interested in hosting, please feel free to forward this email on. I do not have email addresses for all parents, and you might have neighbors or friends that would be interested in this as well. Finally, more information on the Cardinal Chorale can be found at encorehonorschoir.com/the-cardinal-chorale/. You can also find information there about their camp, held at Muskingum University July 24-30. Thanks so much (especially to the parents of recently graduated seniors..... so sorry to bug you this one last time), and I hope to hear back from some of you!
