While there are several church choirs in Portage la Prairie, two Trinity United Church choirs were the only pictures submitted for this book. We show them here for the purpose of depicting the interest taken, and the participation in, church services by our young people. And we print their names for the future reminiscences of each of them. Maybe, some day, some youngster will proudly point at one of these faces, and say to a friend, "There's grandma, she used to sing in a choir". We regret that all the names of members of these choirs could not be remembered by the lady who kindly gave the pictures to us. Our apologies are extended to anyone whose name is omitted, through no-one's fault.
