"We are still in need of many more if this is to be a "stellar" production. Here are some answers

to the most frequently-asked questions:

1. We'd need your recipes by this Tuesday night, November 6.

2. You may submit up to FIVE recipes, but ONE or TWO is just fine.

3. Your favorite recipes may be from family, friends, or your favorite recipe file/cookbook.

4. You need not have a musical connection in the recipe's title.

5. Give your recipes to Kelly Cowan, Deanna Zerr, or Julie Bailey.

6. We are not taking orders for cookbooks at this time (even though the back of the recipe card has an order form), and we will not know the price of the cookbook until we know the size of the cookbook. Check out the sample cookbooks we'll have at the table Tues. night.

7. It saves our committee a lot of time if you will use the form provided, but we will not reject any typed, photocopied, or emailed recipes from you.

- Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center Theater on November 11 (Sunday), 2001 at 2:00 p.m. Take I-25 south. Take First Street exit, turn right at the end of the ramp. You will see the Center and parking lot. Bring your own water bottles and snack for between 1st & 2nd sets. We can get in at 12:30.

- Tickets are $10.00 and are available from any Southern Star Chorus member or from the

Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center Box Office, 210 N. Santa Fe Avenue, Pueblo, CO. The box office is open 11a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday (719) 542-1211.

(If we send them a list of our people who want to attend, theyíll hold the tickets at the door.)

- COSTUME: We will need to take red dress, collar, sequin vest, suntan hose, chorus shoes, earrings that go with red dress, stage make-up, all in one. Anyone who isnít going to Pueblo, please PLEASE bring your black sequin vest Tues night with your name in it and loan to someone who doesn't have one.


~Mel will conduct an extra R&B on Nov 13 at 6 pm. (R&B means "review and brush-up" choreography.)

~"Southwest VEST LOST in the vicinity of the Ascot Theater Performance Hall. Last seen on October 2nd as I handed it off to lovely lady in need of one for the zoo performance. My name (running vertically) is printed in ink just under the sleeve; you have to look a little to see it, but please if you borrowed a vest and have not yet returned it, check for me. Obviously I need it for the Pueblo performance.

Plus, I'm pretty sure it wants to come home!" Linn Pickard


~DUES - if you are a TRANSFER FROM ANOTHER CHORUS, you will need to contact your former chorus and ask them to send us the international dues they have escrowed for you. Skyline canít do this. If you want the dues you have already paid to be applied to your International recharter, this is something you have to do yourself. You can get more information from Lurlene Unruh.

Sue Gilbert reminds us that DELINQUENCIES in paying your dues results in loss of good standing (you canít vote and canít perform with the chorus) and, if not corrected, your membership must be terminated. This is not our treasurer being ornery. Thems the rules.



"The cockles of my heart were warmed to see so many of you ready and eager to purchase/check out tickets for "Sounds of the Season". I know that our approach to working with you is a bit different this time, so be patient as we try to handle this section by section. If your section ticket person doesn't make herself available, please let me know. We'll get you the tickets by hook or crook!

Again I remind you that selling will happen for EITHER 30 minutes before rehearsal (6:30) or for 20-30 minutes after. Ask your section contact when she will be available and work around it, please.

Leads: Gail Madison, Jenifer Vaughn, Diane Aarnaes

Bass: Diane Kessel, Sue Gilbert

Baritone: Therese Bickford

Tenor: Jeanne Schamel

FYI, if you use a credit card, make sure you tell us to either run the charge through now or to hold it for you until you can collect your money. If you pay with cash, please have exact amount; the ladies above are not prepared to make change. Personal checks are good, but will be turned in weekly.

Whenever a Skyline member buys or sells a home through me, I will contribute 20% of my commission to Skyline. (That is $1200 toward our chorus from an average commission of $6000.) Thank you for considering me for your Real Estate needs. Therese Bickford, Metro Brokers, 303.883.2498.
