Rain Deterred Their Plans, So They All Pulled Together To Help The University Choir Get To Their Destination

It began to rain yesterday morning and it still hasn't stopped. Rain suggests gentle. It has not been gentle. The rain barrel, waiting to be attached to the downspout, was knocked over, not to mention a few chairs in the patio are on their sides. The university choir was to be transported to our venue by 4:45 p.m.

They would be missing dinner at their dorm so one of our choir members prepared both a vegetarian meal as well as a non-vegetarian meal for the 25 singers. Others of us prepared side-dishes. Their bus never arrived for them. In the pouring rain, they had to take the "L" from Hyde Park to a stop near our concert site.

Several of our members, attired in concert dress (long black skirts, tuxedos) drove to the station making several trips to pick up the student singers, and not all of them arrived on the same train. It was amazing to see the number of volunteers, dripping wet themselves volunteering again to drive the students back to the university.

The beauty of this was seeing everyone giving of themselves. Not only that, but offering to drive the students the distance back to the university, which was not a short commute. After many phone calls, still not quite certain what happened to arrival bus, but there was a bus awaiting to take them back. Hopefully, everything will be in order today.
