The High Country Barbershop Chorus is the Barbershop Harmony Society Far Western District White Mountains Chapter. It was originated in the year 2000 by Carl (Doc) Dockendorf. Jerry had worked with Doc at Motorola since the mid 1960s and until both retired in 1997 / 1998. Jerry joined the new chorus in 2002 and was very active through 2019. He served on the chapter board of directors for many years and acted as president for two years, helped build sets for many of the annual chorus shows, designed and still maintains the chorus web site, edited and published the monthly newsletters for many years, etc. It has been a major and very enjoyable hobby. Jerry sings lead in the chorus and also sang in the “Ponderosa Pines” quartet for a couple of years.

For many years the Chorus has performed road clean up on one mile of Woolford road. We actually have license number 1 from our city for that activity. The following link shows the work crew for many of these road clean ups:
