BONSHAW, P.E.I. - The monthly ceilidh concert at the Bonshaw Hall on Sunday, Jan. 27 will be a benefit for the Tozia Orphanage in Haiti.

Performers Rick and Maureen Brennan have been involved in helping with construction and maintenance of the orphanage in Haiti since 2011. They have used their experience as teachers to help the children with their math and literacy work at the orphanage, which is home to 160 children. There are plans to build an adjoining school for the many other children in the Tozia area who don't yet have a school; in the evenings, the building would be used for adult schooling.

Other performers at the ceilidh, which runs from 2 to 4 p.m. and is suitable for all ages, will include Meaghan Wilkie and Dennis MacKenzie; Carinne McGeoghegan and Sonia O'Connor; Jeannie Campbell and Charles Reid; plus local musicians Tony the Troubador, Herb MacDonald, and Phil Pineau. There will also be a 50/50 draw, homemade cookies with tea, and open stage time.

The Bonshaw Hall is accessible for small wheelchairs, and located at 17655 Trans-Canada Highway, at the corner of the Green Road by the Bonshaw Bridge. Anyone wanting more information should phone 902-675-4093 or 902-887-2768 or check the Facebook page. Everyone welcome. If a storm causes postponement, notice of that will go on the Facebook event page by 11 a.m., and the Ceilidh will be postponed one week to Sunday, Feb 3.
