Guelph’s “Shout Sister!” Choir Sings for MHPCC

Guelph’s “Shout Sister!” choir made a “joyful noise” for Michael House. They performed on June 2nd at St. Andrew's Presbyterian church in Guelph. Director Beth Becker and the choir continued the Shout Sister tradition of giving back to the community. They dedicate their annual fundraiser to helping their communities.  They are also found throughout the year performing at other fundraisers and at senior’s homes.  Their performances are joyful occasions and their audiences respond with delight to their enthusiasm and energy. There are 19 Chapters of Shout Sister! Choir in Ontario now.  Shout Sister! takes an unorthodox approach to choral singing. They do not audition and they sing a fun variety of music from pop and Motown, to folk, to a touch of country and blues. Choristers learn from recorded tracks so an ability to read music is not required. THANKS to "Shout Sister!" in Guelph for choosing Michael House. You have touched lives not only through the joy of singing, but through your financial support of our mission.

HomeLife Realty Garage Sale

On May 23, 2015, HomeLife Realty (Guelph) hosted a garage sale in front of their office on Gordon Street. After months of hard work in organizing, planning, and gathering items from their staff, clients, and community members, the event was a great success! It was a fun morning, including games for kids and a BBQ for the whole family. Gerome the Gnome even made an appearance! Michael House was thrilled to receive over $1,600 in donations! We are thrilled to have the support of the caring business partners in our community. Thanks to everyone who shopped or had a hamburger, and a BIG thank you goes to HomeLife Realty!
