Summerplace Singers Sweetie Pie Social --- looking forward in a couple of hours as one of the singers, sharing in this annual event. The Summerplace Singers is not a polished performing group, but we have a wonderful time, and the residents of Summerplace (in far out NE Portland, almost in Gresham) cut us a whole lot of slack. Our group will perform several numbers, including Down Calypso Way and Puttin' On The Ritz, plus three solo songs (including one by me.All The Time, written in '58, by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, with Johnny Mathis' rendition keeping the song at or near the top of the Hit Parade for many weeks in '58), plus a bunch of Sing Along songs with the audience. This is always a fun event. :-)
