The Irondale High School Choir, with director Jason Etten and accompanist Steve Ferkus, graced us with four wonderful selections before leading us in a carol sing-along.  It’s fun to see the students year after year and also to hear the senior’s plans for the future.  Thanks go to David Hoel for once again planning the special meeting entertainment.  Dave presented the choir with a $500 donation from the club.
