NPTG To Participate in December "First Thursday"

New Players will be participating in Fitchburg's "First Thursday," on Thursday, December 4th. This we be good exposure of us and get us introduced a little better in the downtown community. All are welcome to come and sing. We will provide music books.

There are tree lightings throughout the downtown area and they hope we would sing at all of them. They are looking into getting a small bus for transportation to various sites.

The plan is that the event starts at the Senior Center at 5:45, where there will be a party for children. Then Santa and the mayor travel by trolley, with the high school band and us following to the different tree lightings.

They would like us to sing at each venue and also ‘en route between the bands songs. Here is the route:

5:45 – Senior Center (if we can make it there for that time)
6:00 – Monument square
6:20 – Renaissance Park
6:40 - Upper Common
7:00 - Riverfront Park
7:20 - MART Garage
7:40 - Moran Square

More information will follow, but mark you calendars!

A Great Meeting Marks a New Beginning For NPTG!

Some 27 people attended last night's meeting and elections at our new building! That's a better turn-out than we have had in a while. It was a diverse group and the discussion was spirited and constructive.

It's over used, but, "If you build it, (of buy it) they will come!" We can all feel that the, "pulse" is coming back to NPTG!

Thanks to all of you that attended!

The Current Board Continues In 2009

The membership unanimously approved extending the terms of the 2008 Board of Directors. All were willing to accept the nominations for 2009 terms. It is an exciting time to serve on the board!
Congratulations to all!
2010 will bring many changes, as many of the members will be reaching their term limits at that time.
