2016 Highlights:

The 2016 Jamboree is now over and what a beautiful weekend it was.  Sun, blue skies, calm waters and harmony all around!  The community LOVED our singing, the Mock Quartet Competition was a HOOT!  Many thanks to the quartet "SeeYa!" - posing as judges. Yeah, really.  The Saturday Night Great Gathering "show" featured 25 "acts" - quartets, VLQs and choruses we know and love - and new ones, formed almost on-the-spot!  Many thanks to the Laconia chapter, the many men who worked tirelessly to pull this off, to the Town of Alton - and to the men and women who brought buckets of great harmony and joy to all.
