  • The SSSG receives %5 of the cost of the card, and that money goes into our operating budget
  • You can buy cards (available in $25, $50, $100, and $250) with cash or cheques
  • You all paid a fundraising fee of $75 to the school, and you can offset that cost by purchasing cards-for every $100 card you buy you will be refunded $5, up to the full amount of your fundraising fee. The card sellers will record your purchases and the bookkeeper, Tracy Jewell, will refund you at the end of the year
  • If you pre-purchased cards, they are available from the card seller at the first group class of each month

Guelph Musicfest fest
On Sunday December 15 at 2:30 pm, the FESTIVAL TRIO reunites for an encore performance of the Debussy Cello Sonata, Ravel's Violin Sonata no. 2 and the popular Dumky Trio by Dvorak. It's a live recorded concert for the trio's first CD. Violinist Sadie Fields returns from Brussels, and cellist Paul Pulford from New Brunswick, to join Ken Gee and record music from their sold-out Musicfest June! Come to the concert-you'll love the music plus help with the cost of the recording and travel. Ticket holders will get a free digital download of the concert when available!
