The Adult Concert Band performance was enjoyed by the 140-plus who attended and raised $1,288 for the 100 Mile District Hospice Palliative Care Society.

“We were really pleased with the community attendance,” says director Jack Fellner.

“The big band music went over really good. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the concert.”

The band performed pieces from the ’30s and ’40s, and local singer Ingrid Mapson delighted the audience with three vocal performances by Ingrid Mapson.

The band is now off for the summer, Fellner says, adding they will resume practices in September.
