Portage Metis Gala Supports Local Youth

By Jocelyn Lequier-Jobin

The Portage Local Manitoba Metis Federation has been holding an annual fundraising gala for several years. It has been a very successful and entertaining evening. This year will be no exception. The back up band will be led by Mark Morisseau with performances by many local fiddlers and singers. We will also have performances by the Metis Prailrie Steppers as well as the Ivan Flett Memorial Dancers.

The proceeds from the event are used to help local young people to pursue music education and preserve the Metis style of music. The youth who are currently taking lessons will do a short performance at the beginning of the evening. We also have two graduates of the program René Jobin and Meilssa St. Goddard performing. René and Melissa are both recording artists that play all over the province and have a promising career ahead of them in music.

We hope to you can join us for a enjoyable evening supporting a great cause.
