And then there was ONE!

And then there was ONE! . . . Yes, one singular, sole, lonely bag of delicious frozen Nova Scotia blueberries, pining for a new home. Let us know if this bag now belongs to you, yeah you. The deal remains the same: $22 for a 2K bag, delivered. First come, first served, just send an email to


Music Theory Workshop
Sunday November 21st, 1pm to 3pm. Hosted by Emma Moss

Participants had a hoot and Emma had a blast. Too bad you missed it but take heart, Emma has more up her sleeve for the coming term. . . . Stay tuned.

Fellow choir member and marketing guru Denise Bedell has marshalled her company’s resources at Content Innovo to produce the following video promotion for HamiltonSings!. Check it out and please spread this link freely on your social networks. Every mention helps.

Newfoundland cookies and squares now on sale! We will be taking orders until December 11th (or until 30 boxes have sold), and Bill Nesbitt will deliver them on December 16th and 17th on his recumbent bicycle.

Each box will contain 13 pieces. The recipes are traditional favourites from Newfoundland:

  • Lassy Mogs -soft, spicy gingerbread cookies with dates and nuts
  • Date Crumbles – rich, buttery Newfoundland date squares
  • Five Star Bars- chewy coconut bar topped in chocolate
  • Nut Sandies- buttery shortbread snowballs with pecan pieces

They will be nicely packaged and make a lovely gift if you have the will power not to eat them yourself! Bill’s original artwork label will feature Newfoundland Mummers this year and recipes will be sent by e-mail to each customer.

Still just $20 a box, and all proceeds go to Hamilton Sings! Community Choir.

Place your order by sending an e-transfer to with a delivery address in the e-transfer message line . . . . Don’t delay – only 30 boxes are available, and they go fast!

We need volunteers to help guide the re-opening and growth of the choir. We are close to cementing a deal with a new venue, so a live, 4-part harmony experience is at hand for this coming January! So please drop us a line at if you can lend a hand at getting us up and running again.

Christmas is coming, the season for gift-giving. Rumour has it that the congestion in the global supply chain is going to cause some surprising goods shortages this year. So why stress about it when a perfectly good opportunity exists to give the gift of a community vocal experience rather than more stuff? Consider buying the gift of a Hamilton Sings membership for your near and dear. Send an e-transfer with the details to today.
