Pedals, Pipes and More is concert for kids of all ages
The Review, Tidings
Lake Grove Presbyterian Church will present Pedals, Pipes and More Feb. 11 at 2 p.m. as the next installment in its concert series. This free concert promises to be fun for all ages, especially the younger members of the audience.
In this concert, LGPC Organist Jeff Woods gets a visit from a very curious church mouse (played by Pam Mahon) and leads her on a tour of the pipe organ while keeping her safe from the pesky church cats. Mahon, a well-known local actress who appears frequently with Oregon Symphony's kids' concert series, will make her mouse debut in Pedals, Pipes and More.
Part concert and part children's theater, the program will be light, interactive and last about 45 minutes, followed by refreshments.
A freewill offering will be taken for the Pink Eraser Project, the church's outreach ministry supporting children in need in the Lake Oswego School District. This is the third concert the church has presented benefitting the project.
The mission of the Pink Eraser Project is to serve the students of families in need within the neighborhood and community.
"What started out as a small project to provide school supplies to a few students in need at River Grove Elementary has expanded into a ministry that offers much more," said Project Coordinator Kirsten Carnese. "Currently there are programs at both Oak Creek and River Grove elementary schools but the project has also expanded its services and support to the junior and senior high schools as well."
The vision of Pink Eraser is to provide not only material needs, but also hands-on support and mentorship. Along those lines there is a great need at the moment for volunteers to help with homework clubs.
"As a school board member I am thankful for members of our community who help address the needs of families in Lake Oswego who need extra help," said Liz Hartman. "With leadership from active district parents like Kirsten Carnese the Pink Eraser Project has been able to organize more people and resources for ongoing family assistance at Oak Creek and River Grove elementary schools."
Lake Grove Presbyterian Church is located at 4040 Sunset Drive in Lake Oswego.
