Friends:  I am Secretary for the Fremont Pathfinder Chorus, a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society located in Fremont, Nebraska, a registered 501(C)(3) non-profit organization is seeking financial support for the following needs:

1) Our risers that we use for rehearsals and performances are aging, and we need to replace them before they become dangerous!
2) Our trailer for transporting the risers and our uniforms for performances is in need of modification and storage.
3) We are growing in numbers and are in need of adding and updating our uniforms.  We are also wishing to add a casual uniform to our wardrobe.

The cost of the above is in excess of $14,000.00. 

The Pathfinder Chorus, currently at 104 members, is currently ranked 10th best chorus in the world out of over 800 choruses that belong to the Barbershop Harmony Society.  The Chorus will be competing for the 5th time in a row at the International Chorus Competition this year (2014).  Please note that all registrations and travel expenses are paid for by our individual members, and do not come out of our chapter funds.

Yearly, the Pathfinders prepare and present a Christmas program that is performed in Fremont and Omaha.  All of the proceeds, usually in excess of $9,000.00, are given to local Charities.

If you have questions or concerns you may visit our chorus facebook page, or the chorus website, or you may contact me.

Friends, our needs continue to grow as we do. We have accepted an invitation to International competition in Pittsburgh this next summer, which will be our sixth international appearance in a row. This not only requires travel money, but coaching expenses as well. As we strive to get better each year, we rely on your help! Your support is deeply appreciated! Thank you!

We can now add to our needs, video cameras to record rehearsals which is our next step in increasing performance awareness of our members. After all, continued improvement is our goal! (We wouldn't mind a medal either!!)
