Recently, I had the pleasure of attending the benefit concert put on by the Vernon Community Music School.
I was very impressed with the talent of all the music students, who obviously enjoyed every minute of their excellent performances.
The music teachers show incredible dedication and ability, and all must be congratulated in putting together an evening of an amazing range of musical pieces.
We in Vernon are fortunate to have such a dedicated group representing the music school, and with this in mind it shows how important it is to keep their home, the historic Smith House, in good repair.
I would encourage everyone to support their fundraising, and by all means attend their concerts in the future. You will not be disappointed.
