Generosity in the air and Gympie Country Music Club

GYMPIE Country Music Club mixed music and good will at its concert in the Senior Citizens Centre on Saturday, March 28.

The hall was filled to capacity for the concert which was held in conjunction with the Masonic lodge.

During the afternoon a cheque for $700 was presented to Kev Ward towards the Masonic fundraising for a Gympie junior football club.

The club also presented a cheque for $100 to Lexie Ison who recently shaved her head for the Shave for a Cure fundraiser for the Leukaemia Foundation.

The afternoon was highly entertaining with many regular artists as well as a few special guest appearances.

A spokeswoman said Gympie Country Music Club members prided themselves on putting their talents towards helping raise funds for local charities and causes.

She said the club was seeking the talents of a lead guitarist and would be interested in any would-be musicians contacting president Wally Westlake on 5486 6161.

Coming Up 

The next concert will be held on Saturday, May 2 at 1pm at the Senior Citizens Centre in Melor St.

Come along for a great afternoon of friendly, traditional country music.

The pick-up bus will be available by calling Alf on 5484 9158.
