President’s Message June
There is so much happening and so many good things happening our Club, it’s Crazy. One of them that we should all take pride in is our Grosse Pointe Senior Men’s Club Choral group.
These Gentleman put in so much time and effort practicing to entertain us and they do a stellar job. We are all proud of these fine men as we enjoy there voices at every meeting! They do a great job and I would like to recognize them here today.
Our Choral Group is lead by Jerry Partridge and accompanied by Louise Veltri. Our Choral group consists of Phil Gibbs, Russell Halleen, George Lilly, Stewart McMillin, Anthony Noto, Paul Nyquist, Ray Radtke, Foster Redding, Edward Roady, Roger Salud, Fred Whitehouse, Giles Wilborn, Mark Wilson, James Callahan, Joe Schneider, Sterling Berry, Ken Van Dellen, Henry Sprague, Dalton Black, Bob Murphy, Dan Biske, and Dwight Angel, and we thank them for all they do for ALL of us and our guests.
As mentioned in a previous newsletter, our Director, Jerry Partridge was contacted by Keith Famie regarding his new project on Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Jerry learned how widespread it has become and that some activities, like singing, may have a positive impact on these devastating diseases. As a result of his conversations in November, he and his crew filmed a segment of the Grosse Pointe Senior Men’s Club Choral Group in rehearsal, which is included in this important work.
On June 3, 2018, the live premier was held here in Michigan, at the Royal Oak Music Theatre. Further, on June 27, 2018, at 9:00pm, the national television premier will be aired on our PBS channel (56) here in Detroit, hosted by TV personality, Joanne Purtain. I hope you all are able to view this program.
Our Choral Group was very pleased and proud to participate in the filming of this significant documentary on Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Please mark this important date (June 27, 2018, at 9:00pm, the national television premier will be aired on our PBS channel (56) here in Detroit) on your calendar or tape it and view it at a later time.
Thank these fine Gentleman when you see them for their service to our Club.
Enjoy Your Club, and Thanks for your support!
