CCMG installs officers, announces August events
The Carroll County Music Group (CCMG) of Eureka Springs recently installed new officers.
Sharon Parker, treasurer of CCMG and director of music at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, was installed as CCMG’s president. Benjamin Winn, music instructor at Berryville Intermediate School and director of the First United Methodist Church Chancel Choir of Eureka Springs, was installed as secretary. CCMG member Judith Casterline was installed as historian, and Carol Morrison, director of the Holiday Island Singers, will continue to serve as CCMG vice president.
Carroll County Music Group is a non-profit organization committed to supporting music education and performance opportunities for area music students. CCMG’s “We’ve Got Talent” concert in March raised over $5,000. Every cent was put towards scholarships for 22 students to attend local and out-of-state music workshops and programs. CCMG wishes to thank all of the local businesses and supporters who helped make these awards possible.
The Carroll County Music Group will be hosting two events in August. The first event will be the second annual CCMG Yards & Yards Fundraiser to coincide with the citywide Yards & Yards of Yard Sales event on Aug. 4th and 5th. President Sharon Parker will host the CCMG sale at her home at 103 Oakridge Drive in Eureka Springs.
The second event is an exciting celebration to commemorate CCMG’s 10-year anniversary and is slated for Sunday, Aug. 13th, at the First United Methodist Church of Eureka Springs. There will be food, entertainment and more at the event, which will be open to the public.
