The second annual Frankston North Rotary and Peninsula Youth Music Society garden party was held at the Frankston South home of the Frankston North Rotary President Mark Sammut and his wife Jane Griffiths on 14 November 2015. This again was a wonderful day in a beautiful garden background. The Peninsula Youth Music Society students entertained the crowd with renditions from the classics to the Beatles. Refreshments included delicious sandwiches, cakes and scones with tea and coffee.
This is an important event for Frankston North Rotary as the money raised is for children who would not normally be able to afford to learn and develop their musical skills. If they have the talent and the will to learn, this will assist them to reach their potential and can be life changing.
A group of over 120 people attended and over $2000 was raised. A cheque for $2051 was presented to the Peninsula Youth Music Society at a summer concert. This money will go toward buying musical instruments for budding musicians who cannot afford to purchase their own instruments.
During the afternoon, one promising student, Meevel Mathew, was presented with the Helen Griffiths Music Award for 2015.
