Church and community supporting each other

On Monday, July 29th, Christ Church Anglican, Markdale, welcomed the Community Foundation Grey Bruce for the presentation of $1,500.00 in support of Music on the Green.

This series of free, outdoor concerts each summer Sunday afternoon, is arranged by the music director, Gerard Willmes, assisted by a team of volunteers who do everything from advertising to setting up the tent and stage for the performers early Sunday mornings.

Chapman’s Ice Cream of Markdale donate tasty treats for the audience.

There is something for every musical taste, folk to jazz to light classical. Audience members bring their lawn chairs and set up in the shade of the tall trees, with (hopefully) blue skies and fluffy white clouds above. Of course, in the case of rain, the concert moves inside the church.

Many thanks to the Foundation for this generous grant and to Chapman’s for the treats.
