The sweet melodies of old time gospels songs were celebrated at the Ponoka Senior’s Drop In Centre on Aug. 31.

Approximately 30 people gathered in the auditorium for an evening of entertainment, fellowship and song.

The evening included music from Baritone singer Vern Pace and the Ponoka Troupadors.

Gospel songs included How Great Thou Art, Amazing Grace, Peace In the Valley, Life’s Like a Mountain Railroad, Old Rugged Cross, One Day at a Time and many more.

The Ponoka Troupadors had Glen Rentz on acoustic guitar, Richard Goodwin on twelve string guitar, Peter Fehr on bass and electric guitar and Ivy Stang played the keyboard.

Rentz introduced Fehr during the event and asked him to go solo on his electric guitar.

“Once he gets going you just can’t stop him,” said Rentz.

The band hadn’t played together since last year but their dynamics held together and they played well into the night.

“We always have a lot of fun,” Rentz commented.

The Ponoka Senior Drop In Centre hosts a gospel concert the last Sunday of every month and everyone of any age in the community is encouraged to come for a night of music and fun.

For more information contact the centre at 403-783-5012.
