Musicale Raises Funds And Spirits For Rural Seniors And Adults With Disabilities

The ROSSS community witnessed a spectacular display of talent and generosity at our recent Musicale event, where nearly 250 tickets were sold, raising vital funds to support rural seniors and adults with disabilities. Musicale has become a flagship event for ROSSS, showcasing the immense talent of local performers while also being a vital fundraiser for the work ROSSS does for rural seniors and adults with disabilities.

The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the electrifying performances by the Village Singers and the Manotick Brass. Their harmonious melodies and captivating choreography left the audience spellbound. The synergy between the performers and the audience created an atmosphere of joy and celebration, making the Musicale an unforgettable experience for all in attendance.

The event received widespread praise from attendees, who commended not only the exceptional performances but also the organization, stunning venue, popcorn, and beautiful reception. A special thank you goes out to Greely Foodland for their generous donation of refreshments, enhancing the overall experience for attendees.

Moreover, the success of the fundraising raffle was made possible by the contributions of numerous businesses and community members. Their generosity further demonstrated the unity and compassion within the Manotick community.

Behind the scenes, the seamless execution of the event was credited to the dedicated efforts of the ROSSS staff, with special recognition given to Della Hart and Lyn Rorke for their engaging emceeing, and Jennifer and Leora Baxter for their invaluable assistance as stagehands. Additionally, the sound technicians Al Borschewski and Don Moberg ensured impeccable sound quality throughout the performances, while Nina Tough expertly managed the projection screen. Donna Nazarenko’s interesting and unique costume designs added a visual flourish to the Village Singers’ performance, complementing Tammy Lee’s choreography beautifully.

The event would not have been possible without the unwavering support of Parkway Church, which graciously opened its doors to host the Musicale. Their hospitality provided a warm and inviting atmosphere, contributing to the overall success of the event.

Reflecting on the overwhelming community support, we would like to express gratitude to everyone who contributed to making the Musicale a resounding success. “We are once again blown away by the generosity and compassion of our community,” Melissa comments, “Your support enables us to continue our mission of serving rural seniors and adults with disabilities, making a meaningful difference in their lives.”

As the songs continue to replay in our heads, the spirit of camaraderie and goodwill fostered by the Musicale continues to resonate within the community in which we serve. Musicale again reminds us of the power of music to uplift spirits and unite communities in support of a worthy cause. Thank you Village Singers, Manotick Brass and all involved in making this event such a success, and THANK YOU to the community for once again, showing up and supporting our efforts.
