Concert will be on Sunday, March 6

–Atascadero United Methodist Church, 11605 El Camino Real, will host the San Luis Obispo Wind Orchestra Clarinet section and the church’s chancel and bell choirs will present a  musical program on Sunday, March 6 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the sanctuary.

The two-hour concert will have two intermissions with refreshments. Donations will be taken, however, there is no admission fee. Children are welcome to attend, and child care will be provided.

There are two purposes for this event: one is to give the community an opportunity to enjoy good music and the second is to launch the church’s drive to raise $7,000 for “Imagine No Malaria.”

“This will finish our three-year pledge of $17,000 for this world-wide United Methodist campaign to greatly reduce the scourge of malaria across many African countries,” church member and event coordinator Maggie Fertschneider said. “It is a very comprehensive program that eliminates the breeding grounds of mosquitos, provides treated mosquito nets and supports medical clinics that treat those suffering malaria. Every United Methodist Church around the world is taking part in this effort.”

For more information, contact the church office at (805) 466-2566 or email info@atascaderoumc.org. For more information about the church, go to www.atascaderoumc.org.
