In February’s Mensal I mentioned that our centre would be recognizing the outstanding achievements of our youth by awarding a scholarship to a student who is entering post-secondary education in September of 2011.
To give everybody some background, this scholarship was initiated by the Alliance of Portuguese Clubs and Associations of Ontario (ACAPO). Over the years ACAPO’s President José Eustaquio has encouraged all member clubs to participate in the scholarship but unfortunately many clubs (ours included) have failed their young members by not putting in the effort needed to raise the necessary funds.

Link out: Click here
Description: The concertina is a wonderful instrument similar to the acordian which is the basis of the folk music of Northern Portugal’s Minho region.
To celebrate this instrument (we just need an excuse to celebrate!), we’ve invited some of the best concertina players from the GTA to come perform along side our very own Henrique Pereira and Davy Neves.
Food will be on sale….yum!
This lively event will be sure to please everyone!
This is a FREE event for everyone
