(Or, give one!)

The Fairview Choir Department would like to express sincere gratitude to the Fairview Community. Thank you for your enthusiasm, support and love of the arts.

As you may know, the arts are often underfunded. This is true at Fairview. The district is only able to provide about 5% of our annual budget needs.

We have come up with a very exciting opportunity to help defray some of the expenses we are currently facing. The choir room chairs are in dreadful condition and must be replaced. We have initialed a campaign that we are very excited about.

If you, or others you know, have been part of, impressed by, or entertained by the Fairview Choirs you will want to know about this opportunity!

For $350.00 you can purchase a chair for our department and have your name and a short sentiment engraved on the chair, for eternity!

Act quickly, we are only offering this deal on 120 chairs!
