"A Christmas Treasury"

Directed by Melanie and Fred Bales. Accompaniment by Donna Grubbs.

Our Annual Holiday Presentation with 2 shows on Saturday, 19 December 1998

History of the Christmas Shows

The Christmas Show tradition began in 1985 while Melanie Bales was President. Bruce Quinn was a board member that year and he suggested that the board offer some type of holiday how commemorating the Guild's anniversary as a "gift" to the members. From this suggestion, the annual Christmas Show was born! Fred Bales, who has performed in 12 out of 14 Christmas shows, leads the pack of performers.

Past directors of the holiday show include Bruce Quinn, Jerry Brees, JoAnne Mitchell, Bill Gonzalez, Melanie & Fred Bales. Happy Holidays to all our Guild Patrons. We hope you have enjoyed our "Christmas Treasury".
