Photos & Notes from the October 14, 2018 Provincetown Alzheimer’s Walk

On Sunday, October 14th, The Sound Dunes Swing Ensemble (SDSE) performed during a fundraiser sponsored by The Alzheimer’s Family Support Center (AFSC) of Cape Cod. The band performed in the 2nd floor auditorium of the Provincetown landmark Town Hall building which also served as the focal point for the event fundraiser and Walk.

The fundraiser was considered a great success by the AFSC sponsoring group which acknowledged surpassing their fundraising goal of $100,000 which was matched by a generous donor. After the walk, the participants had a party with food, live music by SDSE, and dancing.

The AFSC thanked everyone for their generosity!

Here are a few photos that were taken during the SDSE performance from the October 14th event….

  

Dec 2018 – Happy New Year and Greetings of the Season

Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year from the Sound Dunes

In keeping with the sentiments of the season, a number of the members of the Sound Dunes Swing Ensemble (SDSE) helped organize and participate in the Living Creche event in Dennis Village during mid-December. The evening started with a choral concert by the Dennis Union Church Choir, followed by a candlelight procession along Route 6A to the Dennis Village Green and gazebo. Upon reaching the Green, the New Testament story of the Nativity was read and enacted by local adults and children, live cattle, goats, a very personable donkey, and an infant who portrayed the baby Jesus. Here are several photos from the event. Perhaps next December you may want to attend the event as a way to start off your holiday season.

Again, Happy New Year to all of you!

P.S.:  Just a note about our next SDSE event….an informal Dance at the Harwich Community Center hosted by the Harwich Council on Aging.  The dance event is FREE and will be held on Friday, February 15th, from 6 to 8 PM with LIVE music provided by The Sound Dunes Swing Ensemble for your dancing and listening pleasure.
