“Where words fail, music speaks.” Hans Christian Anderson

America is very wealthy in terms of patriotic music!  This year I would like to encourage all of you to incorporate music in your monthly meetings.

President Elvira has chosen “God Bless America” and “This Land is Your Land” as her songs this year. Let’s sing those along with any of the other patriotic songs we know and love. 

Suggestions to incorporate music at your meetings:

1.       Ask a local musician to sing a patriotic song (or lead your group singing a song).

2.      Ask the school music instructor for a student or ensemble to perform a patriotic song.

3.      Ask the local piano instructor for a young pianist to perform a song.

4.      Ask one of your younger, computer savvy members to have a patriotic song ready on their smart phone or Ipad.

5.      Use a CD recording of the patriotic song.

6.      Ask a local accompanist to come to your meeting and accompany your group.

7.      Smile and sing joyfully!


America has so much patriotic music!  Let’s sing it at our meetings and let freedom ring!
