Mark your calendars for August 5, 7 pm
when the St Augustine Acappella Choir
Comes to Town! 

      The Strathmere Improvement Association cordially invites you to this special appearance by the St Augustine Prep School Acappella Choir at the Strathmere United Methodist Church. From barbershop to contemporary, the young men will have you tapping your toes in no time. Admission is free (the SIA will make a donation to the Fine Arts Dept. at St Augustine), but a giving plate for the Church will be available should you choose to make a donation. And the local tie in?   Strathmere's Matthew Pond (second row, second from right) will be performing. 
   The Choir has sung at Night in Venice, the 9/11 Memorial Service and at Ocean City's First Night.  Saturday evening, Aug. 5, 7 pm.
