The Destiny Africa Children’s Choir from Uganda is coming to New England in the Spring of 2012. Wellspring knows first hand that it takes a lot of dedicated individuals to achieve a successful tour, as our congregation was key to the success of the choir’s 2009 tour. This year’s tour manager, Mary Lou Lamontagne, is seeking help from Wellspring. Please check out the specific needs below and contact Mary Lou if you are interested in being involved. Alternatively, you may send your inquiries to our Wellspring liaison and former tour manager Joellen Putnam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
