Goldenaires offering singing Valentine's in St. Lawrence County this year
CANTON – The Goldenaires are preparing their quartets for another day of fun with surprise deliveries of Singing Valentines.
Valentines Day falls on a Tuesday, Feb. 14, this year and the barbershop groups will deliver from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout St. Lawrence County.The Goldenaires have delivered between 45 and 50 per day over the past few years with all the proceeds benefiting high school senior applicants.
Last year, the barbershoppers delivered over 40 virtual YouTube “Singing Valentines” and awarded four $400 awards to deserving seniors in the St. Lawrence-Lewis County BOCES District.
If interested in supporting the effort, please see any Goldenaires chorus member or call Vicki Hanson at 315-379-9848 (home) or 315-261-9828 (cell). She needs to know who the caller is (and his or her contact number to confirm) who will receive the Singing Valentine, the address to which the valentine is to be delivered, and how payment ($40 donation) will be made.
Information will be sent out to schools (guidance and music departments) for seniors with a special talent and/or interest in music (vocal and/or instrumental) on how to apply.
