Pat (Patricia Beard)

Very sad to let everyone know that our dear friend and band member, Pat, has passed away. Pat set her own pace, keeping us on our toes with her energy, humour, irreverence, and love for music. She was never one to stay still for long, and we will miss her driving the beat. A hearty blast of her drumming intro to French tune, Les Marjolaines, will be one of our many memories of Pat, along with her kindness, her warm concern for everyone in the band, and her cheery welcome to all. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.   (February 2019)
