Region 34's 25th anniversary celebration

A range of messages and activities to celebrate the Region's 25th anniversary

We celebrated 25 wonderful years in 2014!

Everyone in Region 34 has just cause to celebrate during 2014 as we pass our 25 year milestone since becoming a Sweet Adelines region. Our logo was proudly displayed on the giant screens at the Sydney Olympic Stadium during our Mass Sing at the 2014 Regional Convention.

To celebrate, more than 900 Sweet Adelines let their hair down at a 25th Anniversary party, complete with special anniversary cupcakes, a fun photo booth and of course, singing! Judging by the energy in the room, everyone felt '25 again'!

For those interested in our Region's history, a 20th-anniversary book was produced in 2009. Click here for a collection of Chorus history that was on display at our 25th Anniversary 2014 Convention.


Tributes from some Sweet Adelines VIPS!

We were honoured to receive video messages from special Sweet Adelines - International President of the day, Marcia Pinvidic as well as Ann Gooch, who was instrumental in establishing worldwide areas and regions of Sweet Adelines. Ann helped get Region 34 up and running and is a much loved figure in our history.

An award is granted each year in Ann's name to Sweet Adelines in areas and regions outside of the USA who contribute to the education and growth in their area or region. We are proud of the members who have received this prestigious award to date - Cathy Rainey, Lea Baker, Linda Wareham and Carole Macintyre.
