Lions Concert on the Screen
August 13, 2020

What a blast! We loved the concert “Tomorrow Never Knows”, a homage to the Beatles. Many of us danced and sang in our living rooms, driveways, and out on the street so I’m told.

Thank you for your great generosity! The Gabriola Island Lions Club greatly appreciates all of you who purchased tickets and kind considerations of further donations, which keep coming in!

Who was it who said “Gabriola doth provide”. And you have! In our 24th year of staging the concert-of-the-year, you all came through.

We especially want to thank the musicians and production crew of Gabriola Songs.
