A Wonderful Tropical Dance

| By Admin |  

The Stow PTO is a wonderful organization. It funds all the "extra" things that are done at the elementary schools that the school budgets themselves don't fund. Just this month they sponsored ragtime virtuoso Jeff Barnhart's performance at the schools which was a huge hit. The Lions Club sponsored his performance that evening at Town Hall. Last month they sponsored children's author and illustrator Lita Judge who told the kids about how her books are made. If you get involved with a town, you begin to realize that every other day there is a fundraiser for this group or that group. Well, Stow PTO decided to just have a dance and cover their costs as a way of giving back to everyone who has supported the organization. This year's dance was at Wedgewood Pines Country Club and was a real blast.

Kids Bingo

Eric Harmon was one of dozens of children who attended Kids Bingo night at St. Isidore's. It was a smash hit last year and we were not let down this year. Girl Scout Troop 2521 sponsored the event (the girls called out the letters and numbers, hosted games, and manned the concession stand). Eric, you may have seen, brought the Pompo Kindergarten mascot with him. Icicles makes the rounds with each child throughout the school year.

American Boychoir Comes to Stow

| By Admin |  
Members of the First Parish Church Children's Choir had the unique opportunity to sing with the American Boychoir at their performance in Stow on Thursday April 3. I could not make the concert, but was treated to some sublime sounds while I took their press images. They even inspired me to join The Sounds of Stow Chorus, which I plan to do in the fall. The 70 year old American Boychoir is regarded as the United States' premier concert boys' choir and one of the finest boychoirs in the world. The singers range from 4th through 8th grade and pursue a musical and academic curriculum at the school located in New Jersey. They tour all over the nation and world and record regularly with such artists and ensembles as the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, soprano Jessye Norman, pop diva Beyoncé, jazz vocalist and conductor Bobby McFerrin and Sir Paul McCartney.
