Sep 6, 2018 - LMC's Mid-Week Musings!

Greetings, Gents!

Well, I missed yesterday... bad aim.  However, as I don't want to disappoint my legions of fan (not misspelled), let's do it today!

IMPORTANT UPCOMING DATES:

  • Sunday, September 9, 4:00 pm- LMC/LMS Annual Meeting
  • Sunday, September 9, 6:30 pm - First rehearsal of the Fall 2018 Season!
  • Sunday, October 21, 1 pm - Skyline Rehearsal Camp

(More important dates coming soon!)

LMC/LMS ANNUAL MEETING:

Come one, come all to the official LMC/LMS Annual Meeting!  

I'm not even going to try to live up to Vince's standards with that letter he sent out, but just so everyone knows, if you're a member of LMC, you're automatically a member of LMS!  We will be meeting in the "Great Room" at Redeemer (down the hallway and to the right from the "Common Area" - where we have coffee at breaks). An agenda will be provided at the meeting, but here's some highlights:

  • Committee and Officer reports
  • 2019 International Tour Committee Report
  • Elections
  • FREE FOOD!
    • Pizza, salad and soft drinks will be provided

If there is anything you would like brought up at the Annual Meeting, send a quick e-mail to Vince!

LMC DUES:

For returning LMC members dues are $50, payable by check (made out to "Langsford Musical Society"), charge (Visa, MC, Amex, Discover), or cash.

Your friendly LMC treasurer will have a table set up in the "Common Room" between the meeting and rehearsal, and at break.

LMC DIRECTORY:

It's been a while since we've done a directory, so let's make sure we have the information correct!  Information sheets will be available at rehearsal- please look through the pile and find yours.  If anything needs correcting pens will be available.  Return your completed sheet to me (cj) before the end of rehearsal!

You may notice some of the photographs appear... well... just fugly.  For the most part that is something the database screwed up when I tried to print the sheets.  However, some people may not like their picture in the first place, or it may not exist!  Regardless, if you want a new picture taken, I will be bringing my camera to rehearsal the two weeks following this week (i.e., 9/16 and 9/23).

We're going to try and get the directory working and available to LMC members on our new website, but we'll probably be making a printed directory as well- for a little while longer anyhoo.  My goal is to have the printed directories available by mid-October.

NOTE: You will notice on the info sheet there is a new section for "Emergency Medical Information."  This is where you list anything you want us to tell the paramedics if you (God forbid!) become incapacitated during a LMC event.  THIS INFORMATION WILL NOT BE PRINTED IN THE DIRECTORY OR PUT ON THE WEBSITE!!!  It will ONLY be available to the guy compiling it (me), and in a sealed "In Case Of Emergency" envelope that we will keep in our concert prep/equipment kit.  Feel free to put down as much or as little information as you think appropriate.

If you're wondering why we're doing this: they asked for the same information for my kids' band and choir.  If it's reasonable for a bunch of 14 year olds, it's more than reasonable for a bunch of (mumblemumble) year olds.

HELP WANTED:

If someone- or a couple someones- would be willing to help your friendly neighborhood treasurer with the directory project- specifically, help hand out the correction sheets- I'd be greatly appreciative.  Just catch me before the meeting Sunday.  I'll buy you a piece of pizza :)

LMC SWAG:

Want an official LMC polo shirt?  Well, now you can buy one!  They're dark blue polo shirts with the LMC logo embroidered in white over the left breast.  Unfortunately, I don't have a good picture to show what the polos look like, but they're nice.  I'll try to remember to wear mine on 9/9, assuming it doesn't make me look like a sausage (it's a couple years old)...

Order forms will be available at rehearsal on September 16 & 23; orders and money will be due at rehearsal on September 30.  The order will be placed on October 1, and shirts will be distributed as soon as they're received.  (If you're not going to be at rehearsal but want a shirt, send me an email and we'll work out details!)

Buy lots!  They make great Christmas gifts!

(Orders for LMC windbreakers and a 2nd order for polo shirts will occur in January)

IN OTHER NEWS:

NO other news this week!  If YOU have something you'd like me to include in a future edition of the MWM, please don't hesitate to send me an email!  Announcements, non-LMC concerts, anything you think the guys would be interested in is more than welcome!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

AAAANNNnnndd that's about it for today!  Tune in next week for another exciting edition!  Same LMC-Time, Same LMC-Channel!
