Civilian, military performers play at Fellowship concert

The concert raised funds for 15 Wing Fellowship projects, which includes assistance to military families, veterans, and community projects

Events like the Musical Swing Concert VI “make us feel welcome in the community,” Snowbirds Commander Lt.-Col. Mike French told the concert audience.

French, in his 15th year at 15 Wing during 29 years in the RCAF, reminded the audience of the Saskatchewan Air Show July 6 and 7 at 15 Wing.

The first air show since 2005, this show will present RCAF and USAF aerial demonstrations acts, civilian and military static displays and displays from the Army and Navy. The Snowbirds will cap the show each day.

15 Wing Commander Col. Denis O’Reilly said the work at 15 Wing training pilots is important to Canadians but “we can’t do what we do without support of all of you.”

Aaron Ruston, chair of concert sponsor 15 Wing Fellowship, said the concert is part of the Fellowship’s mandate to connect the base and the community of Moose Jaw.

Swing Concert VI featured civilian and military performers again this year.

First half performers were Alethia and the Allykatz and Annie MacLeod with Capt. Rich MacDougall and the Cadors, Ann-Marie Rouault and Kelly Sapergia and Ted McHolm concluding the afternoon. O Canada was led by LeeAnn Rice.
