Our New Risers Are Here!

image138

And we extend A BIG VERY THANK YOU to all of our benefactors!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

The Fund Raising Drive for the purchase of new risers that was initiated in late 2018 has come to fruition -- the new risers recently arrived and they are perfect in every way! They are safer, wider, more stable and facilitate easy access to all three levels. With the added railings and their modular construction, the new risers are secure and flexible, and allow for multiple arrangements to suit the event, be it a choral performance, a meeting or simply just for extra seating, 


The new riser system will be dedicated in memory of Debbie Eaton during the Village Voices 2019 Spring Concerts on April 5th & 6th at 7:00 p.m., and on April 7th at 3:00 p.m. at the Vistas Ballroom.


Debbie is the late wife of choir member Mike Eaton. She was a long-time resident of Westbrook Village, a beloved friend of the Village Voices, and a very talented artist and interior designer in the NW Valley. We will fondly remember Debbie's contagious smile, her outgoing personality, kind heart, and love for everyone she met.


Tickets for the concerts are available at the Vistas Rec Center Reception Desk starting at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
