Singing Valentines Once again it was time to deliver Singing Valentines. I’ve always enjoyed delivering them and this year was extra special as the chorus offered to deliver a Singing Valentine to the wives of Armed Services members serving in Afghanistan. The recipients are sometimes embarrassed and generally very grateful. Bruce Sturgis
