St Mary’s Third Sunday at Three Concert Series
The next concert will take place at 15.00 on Sunday 15th October and given by Alison McNeil and Sasha Savaloni. This is a concert for voice and guitar featuring songs from Spain, France and Scotland. Entry by donation.
The Concert Team are always considering new ways to advertise the
concert series. Earlier this summer they started to have flyers printed
for each concert. These can be left in suitable locations – libraries,
filling stations, medical centres, post offices for people to pick up,
or handed to friends and acquaintances. The minimum order for these is
500, and the organisers have been trying to distribute them, but their
reach is necessarily local to Aberfoyle, and many of the 500 copies are
wasted. So the organisers are asking for volunteers from the
congregation to help them reach further: could you help please? Christopher Roads or Richard will be pleased to hear from you.
For your prayers
Evelyn Nicolson, Betty Wilson and her family
