College’s choral department conducting leaf-raking fundraiser

In what has become as traditional as leaves falling in autumn, Marietta College’s Choral Department is conducting its annual Leaf Raking Fundraiser on four consecutive Saturdays.

Members from both the Women’s Choir and the Concert Choir are available for leaf raking on Oct. 23, Oct. 30, Nov. 6 and Nov. 13. All work is done on a donation basis and the fund collected benefit general choir activities.

“This is always an exciting fundraiser for us,” said Cheryl Pasquale, concert choir president. “We really enjoy going out into the community and meeting new people, and also growing closer as a group at the same time.”

To make a reservation: (740) 376-4535.

The choirs perform their fall concert at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 5 at the First Congregational Church in Marietta. They join the MC Band for a Christmas Concert at 8 p.m. Dec. 10 on Fenton Court at Marietta College.
