The 2013 DeKalb Show Choir Giving Party last night was attended by over 130 people. We had a Dinner Dance featuring Big Caddy Daddy at the World War II Museum with dinner by Timmy’s BBQ (awesome food), Snacks, Games, Silent Auction, 50/50 Drawing, Music, and Fun!
We want to thank all of the businesses and individuals who donated items for our silent auction. Many wishes were granted at our wish tables. Big Caddy Daddy was at their finest. We also want to thank Dean Kruse and the WWII museum staff.
We had a great amount of donations given and raised some much needed money for the program as we strive to bring another State Title to DHS by Classic Connection and Sound Sensation.

DeKalb Classic Connection brought the Bluffton Street Fair Championship back to DeKalb County Thursday when they were crowned Grand Champions of the Bluffton Street Fair Show Choir Contest. While it rained all afternoon, the clouds cleared up long enough for the contest to take part. In an interesting change, they announced the placings and the scores for the top three choirs. East Noble was 3rd, Northrop was 2nd and by a wide margin, DeKalb was the winner.
Next Tuesday night is choir night at the DeKalb County Fair. Sound Sensation performs at 8 pm and Classic Connection performs at 9 pm.
Terrin Thomas – Miss Indiana and a alumni of Classic Connection and Sound Sensation, competes in her evening gown at Miss America in Atlantic City. She looks stunning in this dress! She was the 11th contestant to be interviewed by the judges at 11:11 am on Tuesday. Could be a good omen.
We will find out on Sunday if Terrin makes the top 15.
