It was a pleasure to have Ryan join us Monday evening.  Ryan said that he very much wanted to thank us personally, not only for our Pops donation, but also for just being there -as family.  He especially thanked Doug for being "his model", for always showing service above self over the forty years of Summer Pops concerts.  Ryan also brought us up to date on all the programs that have grown through the covid pandemic - free music classes in elementary schools in Westerly and soon in Stonington, foundations choir for adults, monthly speakeasy choir at the United.  Annual Christmas Pops will take place December 18 at 7:00pm and December 19 at 3:00pm.
