Desserts for Show Choir Dessert Show!

Hello Choir Friends,


Repira, CHS’s fabulous all girls show choir, is about to debut their fall Show Choir Dessert Show. The shows are on Thursday, November 7thand Friday, November 8th. We are expecting a big crowd and need your help with desserts. We need individually wrapped, single serving desserts. Two big cookies in a baggie, a slice of cake, any kind of candied mix, cupcakes, brownies etc. are all great. If the dessert requires a fork we ask that you attach one. Please do not bring desserts that require refrigeration or anything with nuts due to nut allergies. Below is a picture that gives you an idea of what we need.


Our choir directors are asking all parents of A Cappella members to bring one dozen dessert servings.  All parents of Respira members are required to bring two dozen individually wrapped desserts and a case of water bottles.


Please bring your desserts to the choir room by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 7th.


Thanks so much for your help. If you have questions please call Sharon Bartley, 214-202-8759.
