To those who attended the first Don Campbell Christmas Concert at Hampstead Middle School, many thanks for your generosity.
The response to the suggestion for donations to St. Anne’s food pantry and the Military Support Club for gifts for the troops, in lieu of an admission fee, was overwhelming. The bins provided at the door were overflowing. Those concert-goers not only enjoyed a delightful evening of traditional and original Christmas music by the multi-talented 5-piece band, but they had the satisfaction of helping others in the spirit of the season.
Thanks also to H.M.S. principal, Patti Grassbaugh for offering the school as the perfect venue. The school’s custodial staff went above and beyond to prepare the area for guests. The concert was presented by the Hampstead Cable TV Advisory Board and due to the enthusiastic response plans are already underway for the second annual concert in 2013.
