Daycare Fundraiser Featuring The Judy K Five

The Pangman Daycare Fundraiser featuring The Judy K Five was held on Saturday, April 27th at the Abundant Living Church in Pangman.

It was a nice April evening and over 75 people came out to hear the Judy K Five play. They performed some of Judy’s original songs and some favourite blues and boogie songs. The Judy K Five is a band of local musicians led by Judy Koszman, from Bengough, on keyboard, Doug McCullough on guitar, Phil Trylinski on drums, Gary Penner on base guitar and Maurice Koszman on spoons.

This local group of musicians have been practicing since January and they were delighted to play to help raise money for our daycare’s summer programming which is for children aged 6 to 12. This summer the daycare will be offering 4 special programs for school aged children: Kids in the Kitchen, Kids in Motion, Creative Art and Woodworking.

During intermission everyone enjoyed coffee and some fabulous deserts. In fact, the deserts were so good the band had a bit of a time getting everyone back for the 2nd set.

The Daycare would like to thank everyone who came out to support the summer program and to the Judy K Five for performing.
