PAGE 8 -- WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2003 -- THE SENTINEL For the love of harmony: The Coquille 'Buncha Singers' group welcomes the voices and talents of the community to make light-hearted music BY JAKE WILHELM Freelance Writer There's a new "buncha singers" in the Coquille commu- nity. The recently formed 'Buncha Singers' group is a group of folks looking for an eacuse to sing and have fun. The group meets every Monday at 7 p.m. at the Praise Center Foursquare Church located at 1546 N. Hemlock in Coquille. To ;oin the group, just walk in and take a seat. The whole idea behind the new group, says 'bandleader' Nonie Chappelle, is to be there for the community to join in and have fun -- plus they offer their harmonious sounds for community events that would like singing added to their occasion. For example, the bud- ding group already has a 'gig' lined up for Heritage Place in Bandon in November, on December 5 the group will sing at Coquille's Tree Lighting, and on December 9, they are organ- izing at the Lutheran Church's Advent opening. "We're having fun with this - - the biggest thrill is to have something fun for this town to do," said Chappelle, who founded the group with the help of Rachel Smith and Diane Glazebrook. It's a laid back singing atmosphere. Folks who want to sing can just drop in. There's no auditions to join this group. Singing isn't necessary and musi- cians that enjoy playing piano, guitars, accordions and other rhythm instruments are welcome. With this kind of mixed group there is always a chance to meet newcomers. Many singers, like Chappelle and Rachel Smith, have performed in barbershop quartets, others have lent their voices to choirs and worship groups. There's karaoke singers like Claudia Clarke. Larry Gallagher and his wife Sharon have performed in professional groups around the area. Jeannie Conklin brings an impressive background. As a teenager, she and her cousin comprised the 'Mel-o-ettes'; together, they per- formed on radio, television and in live performances. It's truly a bunch -- and this 'Buncha Singers' is available for any kind of sing-out. Right now, they're gearing up for the Christmas season, but the group can perform at any holiday event throughout the year and have a repertoire of good 'oldies' to sing anytime of the year. If you are interested in joining the group or having them perform at an event, please contact Chapelle at 396-3608 or 396-6870. Above- Nonie Chapelle (conducting) leads the group through a Christmas song during practice last Monday night. They're gearing up for Christmas season with several per- formances already sched- uled around the area. The Foursquare Church was kind enough to donate the space for the group to meet. Practice is in a relaxed atmophere, held each Monday night at 7 p.m. and anyone that enjoys music is invited. Right- Larry Gallagher strums his guitar, making a nice accompaniment to the light-hearted blend of voic- es heard in the group. g your community. ,At NW Natural, we're excited about becoming a member of the Coos County community. As Coos County builds the 60-mile pipeline from Roseburg to Coos Bay, we're building our distribution system within Coos Bay, North Bend, Coquille and Myrtle Point. Construction began this summer, and we'll begin providing natural gas to homes and businesses during the first part of 2004. Energy that's only natural Natural gas has many benefits to offer Coos County. It's competitively priced when compared to other energy sources, like electricity, propane, and oil. Natural gas is a nontoxic, noncorrosive fuel. It's also the cleanest burning fossil fuel--it emits the lowest levels of carbon dioxide, which is associated with global warming. What power outage? Even if your neighborhood experiences a power outage, you can count on NW Natural to fuel your home. You can use a natural gas grill or an easy-to-light gas cooktop or range to make a meal; a natural gas fireplace to keep warm; and a natural gas water heater for bathing (by the way, these water heaters cost much less to operate than electric models and reheat water nearly twice as fast). Safer than you know Get this, natural gas has one of the best safety records of any energy source. Natural gas is lighter than air, under normal temperatures and pressure, and it simply dissipates into the atmosphere. This means it doesn't contaminate soil or water. So you can count on us to help keep Upper Empire Lake (or any of your favorite fishing spots) clean. A neighborly attitude We're not only bringing natural gas into your community, we're also bringing our neighborly spirit. We think it's important to help support the communities we serve, so we contribute funding to community organizations and help low-income customers with their winter heating bills. As time goes by, we also hope to help with community efforts to attract businesses to Coos County. For more information, please visit us today at u'wu',nwnatural, com. Or stop by our Coos Bay office at 1625 North 7th Street. We look forward to meeting you.
