The Rimbey Community Chorus held its annual Christmas Concert on Dec. 15 to a standing room only crowd.

For many years, the chorus has been entertaining the community in the true spirit of Christmas with a variety of traditional and modern Christmas carols.

The chorus is led by the accomplished and dedicated director, Annette Boorman. Members are drawn together by the love o fmusic and of singing in four-part harmony. This year there were more than 50 individuals, some of whom have sung with the chorus since its beginning, while others are newcomers.

The chorus was accompanied by two gift pianists, Charlote Bonella and Grace Bennik.

Several of the selections showcased the talents of percussionist, Connie Jensen and Flautist, Jody Blackmore.

For the past several years, free-will donations from the evening performance have gone to support the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

It is a farmer-generated charitable group supported by 15 church and relief agencies.

Its goal is to end global hunger.It supplies food needs during times of crisis and works to promote sustainable agriculture in needy countries around the world.

This year the Christmas Concert raised $3,394 in donations. This amount will be matched by federal funding.

The community chorus thanks the community for its generosity and send wishes of hope, peace, joy and love during the Christmas season and in the upcoming year.
