Swimmer of Note Concert

 

Twenty five PAC swimmers, one former swimmer (Robert Ellertson- pictured here) and one brave PAC coach (Laurie) gave outstanding performances this past weekend at the Swimmers of Note Concert to raise $2300 for the Ellertson Family Scholarship Fund. Joining our PAC performers were six gifted musicians of the Oregon Symphony. Bravo to all our talented musicians.

All proceeds from this event go directly into PAC’s scholarship fund to assist families with children who love swimming, but would not be able to swim because of financial hardship.

 Many, many thanks to all those that made the Swimmers of Note Concert an overwhelming success:

To the cookie bakers whose tasty treats kept us munching during intermission.

To the senior swimmers who volunteered their Saturday afternoon as ticket takers, stage hands, food servers, and general ‘go’fers.

To our young swimmers who proudly handed out programs.

To every one lucky enough to be in the audience to witness how great our PAC swimmers are.

Special thanks to Julie Solomon, Allison Baird Ellen Emerson, and Tom Emerson whose talents may not have shined on stage, but shone brightly none the less in what they did. There would not have been a concert with out their talent, time or effort.

 And a standing ovation to Susan Smith and Don Hermanns, our music directors, accompanists, and most talented musicians. We truly could not have done this without their generous donation of time and talent.
