Season 3 Episode 11 - Interview with Doreen Philbin

Welcome to our first special episode in partnership with the Region 21 Historian! In partnership with our Region 21 Historian, we have an interview with Doreen Philbin, whose parents were renowned coaches and mentors Bill and Carolyn Butler, and whose daughter now sings with Harborlites Chorus and Dragonfly quartet. What a wealth of stories she has for us!

This is the first of many special episodes, in an effort to capture the rich history of Region 21. If you have stories to tell or a suggestion of someone we should interview, please let us know or email historian@region21.org.

Also, if you belong to another region and this sparks an idea to capture your own region's history, let us know that too! We may be able to help. :)
