The singing school is progressing nicely with the following different parts: tenor, by principal Alice Dingess; soprano Charley Curry; bass and fido by Lucy, David, and Norma. Guess the alto is left off this half.

Mr. Charley Mullins does not enjoy himself since the black pudding is found by the yard. “Hot dog!”

Harts has such a terrible rep. I’m sure some would reverse their opinion if they would just visit our singing school.
In my opinion, Harts Creek is as good or maybe better, than any place I know. Come on Harts Creeker, and help me cheer Harts.
Are we “It”?
I say yes.
