Most of you probably know that QCED stands for “Quartet Champions of Evergreen District.” I suspect there are those who think it’s just about a bunch of ex-district quartet champions hanging out together. In a way that’s true, but QCED is so much more. Let me tell you a bit about the organization.
Back in the 1970’s several District Champion quartets got together at the Islander Resort on Lopez Island for a weekend of fun, camaraderie and to put on a show for those at the resort. This went on throughout the ‘70s with each new district champion invited to the event where they were initiated into the group.
