Volunteers, Rack Cards, Etc.

Dear Members,

I am still looking for at least one other volunteer to assist with the inserts for the Canada 150 concert programs on Wednesday - May 31st from 9:30am-11:30am.  Please email me if you're interested.

Also, this is your last chance to get rack cards before the summer break.  I will be at Fraserview church on Saturday morning and will bring them then, so please sign up to take a stack or two.

2017-2018 - Rack Cards Ready

Dear Members,

The 2017-2018 Rack Cards are ready for distribution.  They are organized in stacks of 50 and we would appreciate it you would sign up to take some to your local community centres, churches, office, condo building, etc.

You do not have to distribute them in Richmond either or at any specific location.  If you see your friends on a regular basis then take a stack and give them a rack card when we approach our concert dates.

Note, that there is a new page in the Members' area called Rack Card Distribution, please sign up on that page or email me at the office directly and we'll hand them out in the next couple of weeks.

Thank you,

Volunteers Needed for Canada 150 Concert

Dear Members,

We are in need of some volunteers for the following posts for our Canada 150 concert:

3 x Ticket Scanners - Ideal phone is an iPhone but android also works

2 x People to hand out programs

Those are the main positions that need to be filled right now but there other positions such as taking photos of the front of house, we also need volunteers to direct audience members, etc. - the more volunteers the better, there is always something to do.

If you know anyone that would be interested, please ask them to contact the office at 604-276-2747 or by email at roca@roca.ca

Thank you!


BC Choral Federation Raffle Tickets Prize Draw April 25th

Many, many thanks to all of you who have sold BCCF raffle tickets for ROCA this year.  As I mentioned before this is a great fundraiser for us and if we can sell all the books we received from the BCCF we will suffer no financial penalty.

You may recall that 2 books have been donated as prizes. One book is for the biggest seller who sells 3 or more books.  The other book will be awarded from a draw of all those who were able to sell at least 2 books.

In order to be in the running for one of these books, you must return your books to either Karen Tardif (chorus) or Robert Bridson (orchestra) on or before Tuesday, April 25th.  The prize books will be awarded at the end of rehearsal on April 25th.  Unfortunately, although we will still really appreciate you selling more books until May2, for logistic reasons we must have the prize draw a week early on April 25th.
