Pam: Regrets...I was in NYC on yesterday and had no chance to respond to the notice. Melba Moore is very much remaining committed to assisting with projects of children of Huntington Station. The many sponsors and persons supporting our efforts need to know to listen for our upcoming date in March, 2013. Yes, we only needed to change the date and will let you know the place. Melba came in September of 2012 and share in Gospel music with members of United Methodist Church Huntington Cold Spring Harbor and members of the NAACP to announce our partnering to assist in raising funds for the children projects. Well, in March she is coming during Women History Month and along with the NAACP, we look forward to a time that will benefit the community. Thanks again for the announcements.
