Neighbor to Neighbor
On May 24, Neighbor to Neighbor feted the retiring Patti Cody and her Arlington High School and Middle School Chorus for Patti’s final concert as conductor of this lively group of singers. It was a wonderful concert. Patti will be missed both by N2N and her students. The musical presentation was followed by a celebratory cake and punch.
