We just love it

Life in the Crypt is so much fun we tend to stick around a long time! So far our survey of number of years of membership has revealed the following, as at 2009:

Agnes Hodges, since 1959, 50y
Glennie Jamieson, since 1962, 47y
Carol Montgommery, since 1976, 33y
Jeanette McQuillan, since 1976, 31y
Isla Griffin, since 1978, 31y
Graham Shirley, since 1978, 30y
Gillian Watson, since 1970, 39y
Dulcie Jones, since 1974, 35y
Natalie Baylis, since 1971, with break (no total years given)
Annette Winter, since 1979, 20y
Carol Kempton, since 1978, 31y

I've not done the math; this is as reported. Some had breaks.

And for your entertainment, someone added this entry to the list last night:

Agnes Dei, since 1941, Can't remember - had the lobotomy in '69
(Now who would give a poor wee lamb a lobotomy?!)

Wow, that's amazing. All of those members will have been members of the choir well before the student members that we have amongst our midst.

I've read somewhere, that singing is a particularly healthful activity, and makes you look ten years younger than you really are. I'd say proof of the pudding is trying to pick (if you can't already put faces to the names) who these members are.

Way to go!

...although it depends how long you have been a student for, doesn't it! :-)
