'The Sound Principle', a very popular Cranbrook barber shop quartet, with FMCC founding member Joel Vinge as a member was making its annual rounds for Valentine's Day to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. All funds raised go to the foundation.
It takes them two days to visit all those who sign up in Cranbrook and Kimberley to have the quartet visit in person and present a rose to a loved one and sing two appropriate songs for the occasion.
In fact, they even sing for the mother of Jim Roberts, another FMCC founding member, who lives in Oregon, Technology assists greatly!
They found time to visit White Spot Triple O, and present a rose and sing two songs, which were greeted by loud applause by the FMCC members, staff and customers. Members of 'The Sound Principle' are: lead, Gert DeGroot; bass, Rollie Cummins; bass, Michael Jones, and tenor, Joel Vinge.
Thanks so much.
FMCC had to move after two years when the Starbucks in Target closed as part of the store closing.
Thanks to the staff who made us feel so welcome at the new location.
Also, thanks to 'The Sound Principle' who bring moments of delight into the lives of so many people all year round, but especially on Valentine's Day.
They remind me of a quote attributed to Etienne de Grellet, a Quaker missionary:
I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.Etienne de Grellet
