Youth Group Rock-a-thon Feb 28 - Mar 1, 2009
Posted 4 Mar, 2009
Once again Summerlea's Youth Group held a 24 hour fund-raising rock-a-thon from noon Saturday February 28 to noon Sunday March 1, 2009. In the weeks preceding the event the young folk collected sponsorship funds from the congregation and friends in the amount of $1300+ on behalf of the Telethon of Stars for the Montreal Children's Hospital, and Ste. Justine Hospital. The eight young folks rocked two at a time in one hour shifts.

Thanks to Kevin & Susan McKenzie and Linda and Roy Rodd for arranging and supervising this activity.

Following are a few photos of the event. You can pick a small photo to see a larger version, then pick Back on your browser to return to this page.

Sunday morning before church the rockers were still full of vim, vigour and vitality,
having spent the wee hours of the morning setting up tables for Pancake Sunday.
Ain't youth grand?

At the start of the church service, Keith McKenzie & Jacob Osborne
rocked as the choir took their places, but left when the service began.

After the service, those who were not rocking served pancakes, then cleaned up.
When noon struck, they lined up for group photos (John Parmater had to leave early).

And, as we said last year, so ends another night
of "rockus" living for the Summerlea Youth Group.
Congratulations on collecting a healthy sum
for the benefit of Montreal children.
