      To commemorate their ten year anniversary, the Middleport Community Choir (MCC) has recorded their first CD.  Celebrate! A Community of Voices, Ten Years Strong features some of the choir’s favorite songs sung throughout the years and a selection of new pieces as well.    Under the direction of Ric Jones, the 40 member choir spent two evenings in Mark Custom Recording studio laying down tracks; another new experience for most members who enjoy stretching their wings and their talent, traveling to Germany twice and performing in unusual formats like prism concerts. 

    Featured on the CD are pianists Debby Clark and Wendy Gypson, violinist Katie Thomas and a song composed by choir director Ric Jones and his wife Karen Jones.  

  The CD costs $10.00 and is available from MCC members, online through their website at www.Middleportcommunitychoir.com and at these select locations: Middleport Family Heath Center, Pathways in Lockport, The Book Shoppe in Medina and LynOaken Farms.

Light is interested in hearing about Snowy Owl, Short Eared Owl and other unusual bird sightings within the count area.
 Garner Light is your contact person for the bird count,” This year I need you to keep your bird feeders full by Dec. 19. Last year we saw a lot of empty bird feeders.
So if you see a car pull up in front of your house on that day, and people with binoculars are looking at your yard, don’t worry we are just interested in the birds at your feeders.”
