Pontiac-Waterford Chapter

How About those Singing Valentines!
Deliveries ranged from quality fine dining Chef's Cuisine to Jerry's coney Island. From heart surgery at Beumont Hospital to school classrooms. How do you deliver a rose to the owner of a competing florist? (Include a box of chocolates.) Dentists, doctors and bankers were also included in the mix. Several senior citizen residences and a variety of businesses were also visited. All-in-all the Big Chief Chorus delivered 51 valentines in 14 different communities. The project included 19 BCC members and 3 guest singers.
The Valentine Promotion began with an appearance by B-Natural on the local cable Media Network of  Waterford. Thank you Lyle, Roger, Fred, and Dick. This was followed up by a photo of the Celebration quartet in 3 different local newspapers. Thank you Bruce, Greg, Bill and Jack.

Belated Valentine for the “Big Chief Chicks”

Pontiac-Waterford Chapter has an active ladies auxiliary, who call themselves “The Big Chief Chicks”. The “Chicks” get together periodically for fun, and do things to help the chorus, like making centerpieces and table decorations for show afterglows, hand-crafted Valentine cards, etc.

The wives met Saturday morning, Feb. 16th,  at Finos Restaurant in Waterford to have breakfast together. When the wives get together like this, some of the Big Chief Chorus husbands also tag along. Right after the food disappeared, the men surprised their wives, and serenaded them with a belated Singing Valentine!
