Armstrong’s Valley First Music in the Park is wrapping up for another summer.

The last concert of the season will be Friday at 7 p.m. in Memorial Park and taking to the stage will be Noah Derksen a singer-songwriter originally  from Winnipeg who now lives in Vancouver.

“With a self-described genre of contemplative folk, Noah uses the acoustic guitar to convey his thoughts, experiences, and emotions in a mellifluous manner,” said Patti Noonan, executive director of the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce.

“His music is influenced by John Mayer, Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne, and many more.”

As well as presenting the concert series, Valley First has been promoting hunger awareness through its Feed the Valley program each evening.

On Friday, Valley First will host a hot dog barbecue by donation beginning at 6:30 p.m., with all proceeds going to the local food bank.

“If you are bringing your own supper, please support the Feed the Valley program by bringing a non-perishable food item to Music in the Park or making a donation at the nearest Valley First branch, on line through www.valleyfirst.com or through the Food Banks B.C. online donations portal,” said Noonan.

Memorial Park includes a swimming pool, children’s water park, playground equipment and lots of shade.

“Bring a blanket, chairs and snacks. Relax, enjoy the fresh air and time with family and friends,” said Noonan.
