Join together for a fun evening of musical performances by Merriconeag community parents and faculty, Friday, November 22. I am putting out this call for all parents and faculty who would be interested in performing. Please contact Vito Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org. The evening will run from 6pm – 9pm and I am hoping to fill approximately three hours with music provided by the parent and faculty community. The time will be from 6:00 pm – 9pm on Friday November 22nd. This is an adult only fun filled evening. I am also looking for maybe one or two parents who would be interested in helping with setting up and breaking down the stage. This event will be a very casual evening and if you would like to bring a snack or something to drink the plan is to have the tables and chairs set up to accommodate a more intimate atmosphere. One or two volunteers to help with tables and chairs would be wonderful. Additional details will appear in future issues as things come into full view. Looking forward to seeing many of you on the 22nd. (10/01)
