The Botwood Memorial Academy Easter concert was a busy event with rabbit ears and hats and all things Easter – with a couple of surprises thrown in for good measure.

The students who took part in the recent Grand Falls-Windsor Kiwanis Music Festival sang some of the selections. 

Soloists Claire Foss and Olivia Humber along with piano accompanist Sheila Hannaford performed their songs from the festival. 

Christopher Seymore of Botwood Collegiate performed one song from his performance. Seymore will be be singing with the Atlantic boys choir in South Korea at the Olympics in 2018. Members of Branch # 5 Royal Canadian Legion in Botwood also attended the concert.

Legion member Randy Hancock brought greetings and noted that one local piece of artwork in last year’s Remembrance Literary Contest had won second place. Sarah Hart was named the second place winner in the color poster category for the provine. On hand to present the certificate and prize was first vice president Barry Arch and several members of the Legion.
