The A.G.M. of the Portarlington Concert Band was held on Wednesday May 31. There was a large attendance on the night. An update was given on the activities over the past 6 months. This was the brain child of Patrick Donegan who is himself a musician & is passionate about teaching children from a young age to learn to play a musical instrument. Up to 15 children have been attending each week for the past 6 months. Lessons have now ceased for the Summer months but will resume in September. Children from 9 years up are invited to come along and fulfil any dreams they have of playing an instrument. Any parents out there who would like their children to take part or who would be willing to help with fundraising contact Pat Donegan @ 083-8510428.
