More than $1,400 given to Li’l Farm from concert proceeds

Dear Editor:

On April 28, the community was treated to a special spring concert at Cambridge Lutheran Church, arranged by Arne Everson and featuring the East Central Children’s Chorus, directed by Shirley Geib, the Prime Time Singers, directed by Arne Everson, and the Celestial Handbells Choir, directed by Mary Kay O’Neill.

Ms. O’Neill also served as accompanist to the Children’s Chorus and Elaine Johnson served as accompanist to the Prime Time Singers. The quality of the music was exceptional, and our community is truly blessed by the sharing of such talent by all those participating in each of these choirs.

Best of all, the special benefit concert raised in excess of $1,400 for the Li’l Farm Children’s Home, which, through the hard work and dedication of Sisters Francette Malecha and Margaret Roozen, has provided vital foster care service for our community since 1995.

It is truly a credit to our community that a non-profit charitable entity such as Li’l Farm is supported and benefitted by the efforts of groups such as East Central Children’s Choir, the Prime Time Singers and the Celestial Handbells Choir, and the support of a large audience who contributed to the fundraising effort. Thank you to everyone who helped make this community event a resounding success.
