The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay recently honored Jim Heck for his 37 years of singing and 34 years of Board service. As part of this recognition, Master Chorale passed a Resolution recognizing Jim as their first Trustee Emeritus. Master Chorale has also named their annual 'Board Member of the Year' award after him.
Festivities included a car parade to celebrate Jim’s 90th birthday, pictured above.
Jim has been a long-time member of TOS and the Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church choir. Congratulations and many thanks to Jim for his deep commitment to choral music!
The effects of Covid-19 extend far beyond immediate health concerns. TOS completed a food drive benefitting the Beth El Mission on Saturday, August 22.
Beth El is committed to feeding the mind, spirit and body of the farm-working community, through opportunities for hunger relief, education healthcare and spiritual growth.
Nancy Callahan and members of TOS delivered non-perishables to assist Beth El in their support of the community. We look forward to returning later in 2021 for a “sing and serve” event, when it is safe to perform again.

What a unique opportunity to participate in this amazing concert and be on stage with world famous singers!
Nancy Callahan played the piano on February 13 at Faith Café to bring music to the volunteers, staff & Faith Café guests during their lunch service.
