Summertime is in full swing and for many people, a night at the ballpark is just the right thing to make a summer evening perfect.
Performing in a choir is something I grew up with. I was in a choir from roughly 6th grade all the way through college and for a few years in a regional performance group. When I heard that the Potter Ridge Singers of Potter Ridge Assisted Living were going to be performing at the St. Paul Saints game, I just knew I had to attend.
Performances in front of groups, especially the National Anthem, is not easy. When you are surrounded by your friends, it’s much easier. From the moment I jumped on the bus, I could sense that their group was just that – a bunch of friends having a great time!
The group arrived at the stadium just prior to going out on to the field.
We got to see their famous mascot.
A little warm up prior to going on to the field.
Like proud parents, we made them pose for a group picture.

And finally the performance!
Here is a link to a video clip of the performance. There was a little feedback from the microphone as they started.
With a family in the stadium, they sang their hearts out and did such a fantastic job! All of the staff were so proud of the group.
A special thanks to those who assisted the group on the trip: Mickie, Susan, Amy, Patty, Amanda, Trincy, and Linda, . Without you, the trip wouldn’t have been possible!
