The Rimbey Community Chorus outdid themselves this year with two very well attended performances where they presented their lovely musical Christmas message.
The chorus, accompanied by Angela ‘magic fingers’ Bennik sang a beautiful selection of Christmas songs under the skilled and dedicated direction of Annette Boorman. The talented musical team was completed by Connie Jensen on percussion and Jody Blackmore on flute.
As in previous years,Terrance Barg, who represents the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, was in attendance.
Barg gave a message about the ongoing work of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank towards ending global hunger.
CFGB is a partnership of Christian church-based agencies and is credited with being very efficient in handling their funds. A total of 85 per cent of funds collected go directly to its two main goals. They support international programs to meet immediate needs of food and aid in time of crisis and also support communities to feed themselves in the longer term through teaching sustainable farm practices to small scale farmers.
The free will offerings from the two chorus performances amounted to $4,436 for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Sincere appreciation was expressed for the generous donation.
