Thank you for starting this. I was able to Find Miss Garlingtons home address and phone number in the south Carolina White pages. I am either going to write her or call her to see if it would be alright to pay her a visit when I go to my timeshare in Myrtel beach next March. I have been going to Myrtel beach for a few years now and didn't know that she was that close to where I was that I could pay her a visit most likely on my drive home

Found her on You Tube the day it was posted. I still have my Yellow shirt dress, and my white gloves. And lets not forget the dyed matching shoes. I hear Mr. Palazolo has lots of films of the Songsters throughout the years. Wish they would somehow end up on You Tube. Ms. G allways kept the recordings.

I just got off of the phone with Miss G. She tells me to tell everyone that she is alive and doing well at 92 years of age. She is giving speeches for historical socities. She still drives a red Corvette. I didn't think to ask her what year of car it is. She tells me that all of the cops know just who she is. they all watch out for her as she sometimes forgets the she is 92 year old. She loved hearing from me. She said that she would love to have me pay her a visit next spring when I am in South Carolina. I have her address and phone number if anyone would like it. I was just going to put it out here but I will wait untill someone asked. I told her about this site and topic hopping she would log on but she says that she doesn't have a Computer. The U tube was not put there by her. It was done by a historical society.

Red Raider what class were you in? The girls didn't wear gloves when I was in the group. 1974-1979 one funny story I have is the first show that I did was for the firemans christmas lunch. well for some reason nobody told me that we were to wear turttle neck sweaters with our plad vest. I wore a white shirt and tie that day. So Jim McQuestion and RJ took me back stage and had me put my shirt on backwards to make it look like I had on a turttle neck.

More about my yesterdays Call to Miss G. As many of us know Miss Garlington came from a weatlhy family. Well yesterday when I told her that I had seen her You Tube video, thinking that she did that and put it there herself. She started telling me that she was asked to do it because her great great grand father was the founding presadent of the Collage there in New Berry South Carolina. She told me that her parents left her a house right across the street from the school. as you can see from the video she does look great for her age. When I told her she looked great she said the she has an excerise bike in the back room the she rides a mile or two every day. She is gettng ready to give a speech in November. I know yesterday I had said the I would post her address and phone number if anyone asked, but I think I would rather not. If anyone wants it that bad they call look for it them selves. I don't want to be responsable for her getting bobbarded with phone calls. after all she is 92. I am going to write to from now on. I will be going to visit her in March when I go to my time share. the time share is a 3 bedroom unit so I might even ask her if she would like to come spend a few days with my wife and I in Myrtel Beach, right on the beach.

THe songsters was a singing group that was taught and conducted by Miss Helen Garlington. She was the Great grand daughter of the founding presadent of the Newberry theatrical collage in Newberry South Carolina. She also lived in Ecorse less then a mile from the high school. she retired in the early 80's. She was one classy lady. She would buy a new Corvette almose every other year. sometimes a red on and sometimes a white one. When I had her in the mid to late 70's there were kids in my class whos parents had her. David Palazolo who also taught at the school when I went there had her as a student also. From what she told me when I called her the other day he still goes to South Carolina to see her. You could alwaays see her driving around town in her Corvette. Goggle her to find out more about her or to see if you remember ever seeing her as she still looks pretty much the same even at 92 years of age.

I feel as though I am still a songster. The influence Miss G had on my life is almost spiritual. She was a perfect role model to me. Some misunderstood here assertiveness. Women weren't suppose to stand-up for what was moral. She has had a really big influence on my life. I was in the Songster and Student Tech. from 65 to 69. I remember the first song I performed with the Songster, "Consider yourself". I always felt at home when I was there at school with Miss G. and over the years I still get that feeling when ever I get on stage to sing, dance or perform (not as a profession). I watched that clip of her on Youtube and it truly brings joy to my heart hearing her, especially hearing hear laugh in the same way as back then. Boy, do I miss her.
You say you have her address, I live some 9000 - plus miles away now, and would love to just have the chance to share with her what she has molded into a strong assertive loving caring person.

"This is the Land of Milk and Honey" "Sleep" "Jesus Christ Superstar" Your life suddenly came to attention at the snap of her fingers, the sound of her voice, the demeanor of her stance. Student Tech, Songster, Glee Club, and her pet. Lots of people knew that. We put so much wax on her White Vette one year for the parade we couldn't stick not one kleenex flower on it. She laughed and said get the string come on people think on your feet. Impeccable fashion style. She could tune into a kid way down the hallway and know everything that was going on. If we only knew what she had already accomplished before she even came to Ecorse and what she came from. Still have my yellow dress white gloves and dyed matching yellow shoes, they are classic now. Have a few years of programs as my brother and sister were also with her in all her clubs and classes. I was lucky enough to meet her when I was seven and carry her with me everywhere. That Impressive Classy Lady deserves at least to have a 1st class Autotorium Stage and Theatre Stage all NAMED AFTER HER! Just dreamin

The Songsters were Miss G's elite singing group. We went all over singing, even at other High Schools. The Fisher was the best. We could "smoke" any chorus group!

with Miss G's leading us, we weren't elite, we were just so #@$%^& good. I remember one performance, where we got the word that this elite group of socialites wanted to cancel our performance because they didn't feel that a high school group could meet the standards of event that they deserved. We left that place with them cheering, applauding and begging for more. Man was it great. Glee has nothing on the Songster. We'd mop up... LOL....I'm just saying. Cheers
