Cowley vocal group selling singing Valengrams in area


A Valentine’s Day tradition that began more than a decade ago at Cowley College is continuing as the college’s CC Singers are selling Singing Valengrams.

Now through Feb. 11, the CC Singers are selling Singing Valengrams to customers in the Arkansas City and Winfield area. For $20, customers will receive one song, one carnation, and one homemade Valentine card. For an extra $5, an additional song will be sung. Orders often are made for husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, moms and dads. Most recipients of the Singing Valengrams are surprised when the CC Singers show up in their formal attire.

“It’s a long day of singing, but the students have a lot of fun doing it,” said Connie Donatelli, Cowley’s director of vocal music. “It allows the CC Singers a chance to get out and perform some traditional love songs, and it brightens the day of a lot of people.”

Deliveries will be made to the Arkansas City and Winfield areas between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.

This year’s selection of songs:

1. Let Me Call You Sweetheart.

2. I Love You Truly.

3. Hooked On a Feeling.

4. I’ll Be There.

5. I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You (Elvis Presley).

6. Close To You.

7. Happy Together.

8. Let It Be Me (I Bless the Day . . .).

9. Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man (female singers only).

10. Unchained Melody (male singers only).

To order, contact the Humanities Office at 441-5252 or 441-5223. Proceeds go to support the CC Singers with the group’s spring tour and other projects.
