WEDNESDAY JULY 3 REHEARSAL PLAN

Today is a YELLOW Day.

No alcohol at lunch, please. And be moderate in the evening.

Welcome to my hometown of Napa, California. We lived here from 1988 to 1995 while I taught at Vintage High School – 7 choirs, including a show choir! REALLY. Two of our three children were born here. We left when the twins turned five years old so they could be in full-day kindergarten while I worked on my masters at Westminster.

Our main hosts, Dave and Loie Whitmer, were some of our best friends while living in Napa. For the last few years, Loie worked in the HS music office doing all the stuff that Rachel and Amy do now. Those of you staying on Euclid Street are mostly staying with friends of the Whitmers that Loie recruited to make sure we had enough beds.

We’re rehearsing in the Napa Methodist Church. We were very active here when our children where small. I sang in the choir, directed the youth choir, and most of our friend group was from this congregation. It truly is a homecoming. We’ve only been back (to Napa) a couple times since moving to the east coast in 1995. And looking at the event listings, it looks like were going to have a good turn out from Vintage HS alumni, and Santa Rosa HS alumni. (I graduated from Santa Rosa High School, then taught there for a couple years before we moved to Napa.) Clearly an emotional week ahead for Paul & Carol.

PLEASE PROMOTE THE FACEBOOK EVENTS ON YOUR OWN SOCIAL MEDIA. You never know who’s out there that might show up at our concerts. And HERE is a link to our “Daily Updates” blog, where your friends and family can follow along with our day-to-day activities. SHARE SHARE SHARE!!
