Brattleboro Sings brought together people of many generations last night in town. Though I had hoped it would take place on the town common, rain prevented it, driving the singers to the American Legion instead (which actually proved quite appropriate when singing patriotic songs like "Yankee Doodle" and "You're a Grand Old Flag"). Song sheets helped prompt my memory on certain songs, but others are so engrained in my memory that I could join in easily. I especially loved remembering the descant to "This Land is Your Land" and singing it along with one of the song leaders, a delightful elementary music teacher. Thanks to my elementary music teacher, Mrs. McGowan, for exposing us to so many songs back in the 1970s. And thanks to Becky Graber (http://www.beckygraber.com/) and Alki Steriopoulos (http://iamalki.com/iamalki.com/ALKI_STERIOPOULOS.html) for guiding the singers last night.
