ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING TO BE HELD

The Annual General Meeting of the Parrsboro Band Association will be held this year on March 24th at 7:00 pm.   However given the current restriction thrust upon us by the pandemic only 20 members will be permitted to attend.   Reservations will be required to be made in advance and we will adhere to all health protocols including hand sanitizing on arrival, masks to be worn during the meeting, and a 2 m distance between individuals or bubble groups will be kept.  So mark your calendars, make your reservation and be sure to not miss out on this annual information session at which the Board will be selected.

TIME TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP

Even in this time of uncertainty and with most activities at The Hall unable to be held, including concerts, music lessons, and fundraising you can still renew or start your membership in the Association and help us keep things moving ahead.   We are proud of our members and how they have helped pitch in and continue to support The Hall and look forward to a productive year, and hopefully a resumption of activities on a more normal basis.

So renew, or join now and help us move forward.   You can renew on line here or contact any Board member to make arrangements for renewing or joining.   Those who attend the AGM coming up on March 24th can renew at that time.

SOCIAL DISTANCE CONCERT FEATURES GOSPEL MUSIC

This evening’s Social-Distance concert from The Hall featured the Hi-Way Pentecostal Gospel group and the five members presented an hour of uplifting and comforting music, so necessary in these unsettled times.   We would like to thank the group for sharing their music and their message of hope.

Tune in next week for Virtual Open Mic XX, with perhaps even a St Patrick’s day theme.

SOCIAL DISTANCE CONCERT 43 FROM THE HALL


Sunday evening The Hall presented the 43rd Social Distance concert from The Hall brought to you by The Hall, the Parrsboro Lions Club and CICR radio. Tonight Rob thought it would be fun to 'review' the other half of the concerts, the virtual open mic nights so put together a retrospective of a selection of performance from all 17 of the virtual open mic night and the result was well worth it.

A great evening of entertainment, with plenty of variety. If you missed it at 7:00 pm you can still go to the live web events page and see the whole show. So take a look and enjoy.
