Band do­nates

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - Mitchell Shire Con­cert Band sec­re­tary and pro­duc­tion man­ager Pam Collings, Broad­ford RSL’s Pe­ter Brana­gan, band pres­i­dent Nigel Div­ito, Sey­mour RSL’s Ross Ste­wart, Kil­more-Wal­lan RSL’s Mike Robotham, and Sey­mour Legacy’s Merv McAliece.

The fi­nal num­bers have been crunched for the Mitchell Shire Con­cert Band Ar­mistice Cen­te­nary Show’s fundrais­ing ef­forts.

Spon­sor­ships and grants from many or­gan­i­sa­tions sup­plied funds for most of the ex­penses for stag­ing the three shows — in Broad­ford, Sey­mour and Wal­lan — and the gen­eros­ity of all the or­gan­i­sa­tions in­volved (plus many vol­un­teers) en­abled the con­certs to make a grand to­tal of $3600.

Th­ese funds were split evenly be­tween four or­gan­i­sa­tions — Broad­ford RSL, Sey­mour RSL, Kil­more-Wal­lan RSL and Sey­mour Legacy — which each re­ceived $900.

A pre­sen­ta­tion was held at the Sey­mour RSL on Fri­day.

The Mitchell Shire Con­cert Band pres­i­dent Nigel Div­ito made pre­sen­ta­tions to Ross Ste­wart (Sey­mour RSL), Pe­ter Brana­gan (Broad­ford RSL), Merv McAliece (Sey­mour Legacy) and Mike Robotham (Kil­more-Wal­lan RSL).

Mitchell Shire Mayor Bill Chisholm and Coun­cil­lor Rhonda San­der­son also at­tended the pre­sen­ta­tion.

The Mitchell Shire Con­cert Band thanks ev­ery­one who took part in, con­trib­uted or at­tended th­ese shows dur­ing the first two week­ends in Novem­ber.
