I thought I should let you know that Sunday the 6th of July when Ken Davis is at Sandy Pines Chapel,that they are having another quartet sing before Ken's performance. The quartet will begin singing at 5:30 with Ken's performance right afterward. You might like to have the church members come a little earlier so that they can see both.
