Class and Convention Style

"The song that YOU sing does you the most good"
     --Frank Stamps
Singing conventions are alive and well today.  Remember the all day singings with dinner on the grounds?  They have changed, but not much.  Mostly now the conventions are on Friday evenings  and all day Saturday.  People still come from miles around--covering many states.  Why don't you join us???
