ANOTHER MAJOR RENOVATION COMING TO THE HALL

The Board of directors at “The Hall” is pleased to announce that the tender for the roof replacement at the hall has been awarded to Rafe's Construction of Parrsboro.  The entire roof will be replaced on the main hall and annex. This project has been made possible by everyone who support our events and by those who donate financially.  In addition, the Municipality of Cumberland has provided a grant for one half the cost of the project ($17500.) Without great support like this, this project would not be possible. The contractor plans to be on site by the end of Sept. so watch for updates.

"TWO PRESSED MEN" PERFORM IN THE PARK

Frank and David obviously enjoying their time performing

In what was probably the final appearance of a unique pairing that began by accident, Frank Hartman and David Towns performed together this evening to a receptive audience.   The weather cooperated, clearing up to a sunny, warm evening with enough breeze to keep the bugs away.
With talent like this behind you, anyone can sound good

Next week in the park, Marg and Andrew Lloyd.   Don't miss them as the Sunday evening concerts continue.

A FABULOUS DAY FOR BAND DAY

We were blessed with almost perfect weather for the annual Band Day, with mild temperatures, brilliant sunshine and enough breeze to make the entire afternoon bug free!

Volunteers make this all happen, all day

The volunteers had started the day before, assembling the canopies, bringing in some of the equipment etc, and then by 10:30 the team was back in action getting everything set to go for the day.

The music began at 12:30 with the Parrsboro Citizens' Choir starting the proceedings and for 45 minutes provided the growing audience with a wide variety of music.

Next up was the Elastic Big Band which once again played a wide assortment of big band and jazz music which had some members of the audience up and dancing and all mesmerized by the tight sound, with occasional tremendous vocals by Janet Crawford and Rob Bentley.  (accompanied by a Harley-Davison which proved to be slightly flat for the tune)

Once again the Sackville Citizens Band attended and once again proved their mastery of a wide range of music from martial tunes in honour of Canada's 250th, through movie themes and a medley of old 'favourites' and novelty pieces.   We thank them once again for their continued participation.

But not nearly enough can be said of the volunteers who worked so hard, and spent so much of their time and energy, to ensure the success of the day.   Without their selfless efforts none of this would have been possible so from the bottom of our hearts..."THANK YOU"

A good crowd on hand to enjoy the entertainment and the weather

DAVE BAKER AND THE SANDS OF TIME FILL THE PARK

Dave enjoyed his time almost as much as the audience did

The sweet soulful sounds of summer continued as Dave Baker and The Sands of Time (with friends) graced the Parrsboro Bandstand Sunday evening July 16/2017! Dave and the Sands of Time can be seen and heard performing up and down our Parrsboro shore at many events, look for them!   Dave was aided by Connie Ells, Elaine Baker, John Melanson, Patrick Hanlon, and Ron Byers.  !  A wonderful variety of music that kept a great audience entertained for over an hour.

Dave and Connie teamed up several times to deliver some amazing duets

There will be no concert on the Bandstand next Sunday as the park will be filled with music from 12:30 on at our annual Band Day.   Concerts in the Park will resume on July 30th with the Wazoo Blues Band.   Don’t miss either of these great opportunities to hear fabulous music in the park.
