The concert had approx six songs per set and the seniors were rotated in shifts outdoors to hear the music in keeping with AHS (Alberta health Services) numbers for group gatherings. Some residents were watching the performance through the windows. The Band members were thankful to Smith Music for providing a PA system for the event. – Lucie Roy Photo
