At MYA we have had several recent changes. Yesterday's Music & Family Fun Fest was moved inside after weeks of planning for an outdoor event. Volunteers stepped right up and helped with the change in plans, we made the best of it, and although the inflatables and some of the "fun" was missing, our true mission, the music and rehearsals, went off well, in crowded rehearsal rooms packed with students, parents and our dedicated music directors.
We also received a phone call about a week ago that the print shop we have used for 20 years, Mumm's Print Shop in Evanston, had sold their press and was going out of business. We will miss working with Bernice, Lester and their nice, Marilyn, who would take all those program ads and information in almost any format we gave them and deliver our program books within an impossibly short deadline. They always pulled through and we're sorry they had to close their business. Our Xerox copier/printer in the office does so many jobs that we used to also have them print. If anyone has any contacts or connections to a good printer, please let us know.
