Saying Goodbye

Greetings Everyone!!
This message is for all CURRENT chorus families and ALL ALUMNI families and all FRIENDS of Hillgrove Chorus!!
As many of you may have heard, Mr. Stoner has been accepted into an elite Graduate Program at The Univirsity of Miami in Vocal Conducting. Although we are so sad to see him go, what a a fabulous opportunity for him and how proud we are of his accomplishment!!
We said some farewells last night at the Spring Banquet, but we would like another opportunity to spend some time with him and say a final farewell for now!
This opportunity will be on June 17th at the Robertson Home in Heritage Oaks Subdivision right on Dallas Highway.  
The Booster Association is providing the meat (BBQ) and we ask that everyone bring a side dish or dessert to share! Water will also be provided, but feel free to bring whatever else you and your family would like to drink:) 
The time is TBA, however, it will be Open House style, so please consider dropping in for as long as you can!!
Please follow our blog for the most updated info and final time.  
One of Mr. Stoner’s former students has set up a GOFUNDME page for him. Please visit the link below. Although his school is paid for and he will receive a small stipend to use for housing and expenses, he will be in “hungry college student” mode for the next 3 years!! Maybe between all of us, we can make sure he doesn’t go without a good meal when he needs it!!
Thank you everyone and please send any questions and don’t forget to follow our blog below!!
Hope to see many of you on June 17th!!​

Kit Robertson President

Lorena Elsey Vice President

Beth Pound Secretary

Laura Sinyard Treasurer
