RUSH (Rise Up Singing in Harmony) Monthly Sing

RUSH, led by Roger Conant, is a group that meets monthly, almost always in the Pelham Library's community room, to sing! Nobody here is a trained singer, there are no "try-outs," this is just people who like to sing together. It's very informal, very fun, and open to everybody who likes to sing. They often use the famous Rise Up Singing book created by Peter and Annie Blood-Patterson, our neighbors in Amherst. Visit to sign up for upcoming singalongs.

Calling all Laptops, iPads, iPods, etc.

The Pelham Library is a wireless hotspot! Thank you to Comcast for this free service to the community.
