Read our original post, below, to find out why you don’t want to miss this anniversary event!


FROM LYNN O’MALLEY: There will be LOTS of booty-shaking taking place in Lynn Valley this year, and now’s the time to pull out your calendar and take note.

You’ll be hearing much about the Gala Dinner Dance taking place on the Eve of Lynn Valley Day, but two weeks before that another great event will give you the chance to warm up your cha-cha.

The Argyle Music Association is proudly presenting its 30th Cabaret Night, featuring musical numbers that have been performed by the school’s jazz artists over the past three decades. If you’re a lover of jazz, or food, or dancing, or kids, or auctions, Argyle is THE place to be on Friday, May 11, at 7 p.m.

People who have attended Cabaret nights in the past have raved about the high-quality entertainment and how nice it is to party with their pals in such a friendly (19+!) atmosphere. To complete the feel-good charm of this dinner club event, it’s great to know that all profits are directed toward scholarships for graduating Argyle Music students.

Cabaret is also a great chance for elementary parents to see what amazing things can result when children make music education part of their lives. So anyone wanting to hear some of the great music that will be played at the evening event is invited to come to a sneak preview concert that same day at 3:30 in the Argyle gym.

Cabaret is a little ways down the road yet, and ticket prices are still to be announced. BUT there are lots of ways to jump in now to help support this worthy event. Please consider:

– donating to the Silent Auction. Gift cards, auction items, or anything that could be added to a gift basket are very welcome.

– making a cash donation to help with expenses.

– helping out the stretched-thin parents who are organizing this multi-layered event. There are lots of tasks to be done, and many hands make light work.

– becoming a corporate sponsor.
