A local member of the Fox Valley Chorus was recognized for her longevity as a Sweet Adeline.
Dottie Allen, Chippewa Falls, was recognized for 50 years with the chorus. She joined one other member as 50-year members, and four others were recognized for their years of service as well.
The chorus took first place at their regional Sweet Adeline competition in Minneapolis.
The convention, held April 19-21, was attended by about 400 members from Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Iowa and Canada. With this year’s winning placement, the chorus earned the privilege of a 9th appearance on the Sweet Adeline International stage. Sweet Addiction, a quartet from the chorus, placed 5th in the quartet competition.
