Sandy Bailey Receives 60-year Honor

Long-time Grand Rapids Chorus member Sandy Bailey was recently honored with her 60-year membership pin at Sweet Adelines Headquarters in Tulsa, OK. 

From Sandy:
"Last month I received a letter from Sweet Adeline Headquarters congratulating me upon my 60th year as a member of Sweet Adelines Inc, and they were wondering how to get my 60 year pin to me.  Since I travel through Tulsa to visit my Oklahoma daughter and family several times a year, I asked if I could stop by our headquarters building to pick it up.  They agreed that would work just fine.  So on May 8, my husband and I stopped at our beautiful headquarters building, received a tour, and was presented with my lovely 60 year pin.

I was very happy to represent Grand Rapids chorus!"
