    “Never Forget Where you came from”
    Congratulations Valley Voices and happy 40th! Wow, where does the time go? And to think I've been a part of this amazing chorus for 38 of those years.
    Well, to be fair, I was a member of the Queens of Kings when I was still in high school, when you were associated with Sweet Adelines. I took a few years off to get married and go to college and when I returned in 1981, you were then members of a new organization called Harmony, Incorporated. Since then, I served in many capacities and have seen many changes, including members, directors, and even a name. I have learned so much from so many. Truth is, I would not be the person I am today without my involvement with this chorus.
    I'm sorry I can't be there to celebrate with you today but please know I am so proud of you. And I am very proud to say that I got my start with Valley Voices. I will never forget where I came from.
    Love in Harmony,

    On behalf of Area 1 and Harmony Incorporated, I'd like to extend heartfelt congratulations as you celebrate your 40th anniversary. I want you to know how disappointed I am that I cannot be here to take part in your celebrations as you recognize all of your accomplishments past and present. We are so fortunate that you are members of the Area 1 family and I cannot begin to express how important and special you are to all of us. You are a group of vibrant energetic women (led by a talented, caring man) who have given so much to the community, to Harmony and to each other. Your love of our barbershop craft is obvious in all you do, and we cannot imagine Area 1 without you. You have inspired generations of women and we look forward too many more years of making music together. So, as you raise a glass (or 2) you can be proud of everything that you have accomplished over the past 4 decades and we are beyond excited about all the possibilities that lie ahead.
    Love, your Area 1 Director and friend,
    Linda McMaster
