I'd like to recommend Joanne Ehret. She has been very helpful to me for the treatment of various health challenges, some big, some small. Joanne not only with treats with acupuncture, but also offers Chinese herbal healing. Joanne is passionate about her work, and is also intuitive, compassionate, and delightful. She's in Belchertown, and here's her email:

Room For Rent

My name is Scott, I work at UMass and I'm looking for a place to live. A friend forwarded this listing to me and it sounds great. I've worked part-time at UHS in the BASICS program for over 10 years and am looking for a room/studio with bus access to UMass. The house I'd been living in for several years got sold and the new owners wanted to turn it over to a family. I'm a pretty quiet guy with a passion for nature photography and I'd love to hear from you if the room is still available. You can reach me by replying to this email or by calling me at 413-687-8213.

I use Winston Bancroft, his numbers are 413-584-0798 and/or 413-250-6287. He's been our family electrician for over 30 years. He's really dependable and does quality work. I'm not sure how his prices compare because I always call him. I trust him and that goes a long way when we're talking about electrical issues.

Young, But Great Talent!
Save The Tour, Benefit show!
Hosted by Gabe Jackson and Hunter Grant

Wednesday, March 28 at 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

Waterfront Tavern
Holyoke, Massachusetts

Share this event with your friends


Come see a great show at the Waterfront Tavern!

Recently PVPA's music department has been planning a tour to VA, and it was swiped out from under our feet due to unfortunate circumstances. But the community has made a massive uproar and began to fund-raise so that the tour can still happen. A large effort has been put in by students to make these benefit shows happen, so come see what music the PVPA ensembles & students are made of. There will also be guest musicians!

A raffle or auction will be in play as well!
Everything to raise money for this trip, donations would be greatly appreciated.

Please come and support PVPA's music dept and the Waterfront Tavern, Wednesday the 28th of March.

Helping Hand
I am posting on behalf of my daughter, Vyanna and friends at Pioneer Valley Performing Arts school with a unique & time-sensitive
request. We are looking for fundraising heroes to help ‘Save The Music’. Specifically: PVPA’s
ambitious music ‘We Came To Play’ music department tour to Virginia happening April 6—
12, 2018.

PVPA’s four music ensembles (Jazz, Rock, Pop and Acapella ensembles) comprised of 65 student
have come together to create one incredibles communal show. Our bags are packed, the hotels
and buses are booked, and we are ready to go. We are already booked to perform three full length
shows in VA, including one at the famous Busch Gardens. We will also be conducting a half-day
workshop at the Waller Mill Magnet Elementary School, where we will teach students about making
music as a group, and then perform for them.

April Tour In Jeopardy Of Being Cancelled!

The beloved head of our music department, Frank Newton, has had a vision of taking our tour
on the road for many years, and took on the huge task of organizing for the past year to make
this vision a reality.

Unfortunately, we were just informed that our major funding source is no longer available.
The entire tour is in jeopardy of being cancelled just two weeks before we’re supposed to
hit the road! Our students have been rehearsing and working non-stop the entire school year to
create this wonderful show. We will NOT give up now. We are determined to save it. That’s
where you come in.

How You Can Be A Music Hero

We are tasked with raising $26,000 in just a matter of days (the bus deposit is due on
Monday, TODAY, March 26, 2018). The good news? We think this is actually possible. The response to
our plight has been swift, and the outpouring of support heartening. We are asking friends,
family, alumni, businesses, benefactors and supporters of students and music lovers
everywhere to donate what they can to the nonprofit ‘Friends Of PVPA’ so our students’
dreams of going on this tour can stay alive.


Your contribution will make an immeasurable difference not only to our PVPA community, but to
our students and the people we will be playing for. All donations are tax deductible, and can be
made through the ‘Friends of PVPA’ via PayPal or credit card.

Want to make a tax-deductible donation? Here’s how:

We greatly appreciate any and all donations to this most worthy cause. You can easily donate
through PayPal or credit card by going to the school’s website.
Click ‘DONATE NOW’ button in upper left hand corner
IMPORTANT! Under ‘Special Instructions ’, please write
‘For VA Music Tour’ to make sure your funds will go directly to our music tour fundraising effort.

You can also send a check MADE OUT TO FRIENDS OF PVPA to:
Friends of PVPA
c/o PVPA
15 Mulligan Drive
South Hadley, MA 01075
Note: Please write ‘For VA Music Tour’ in the memo section.

Watch the 2018 ‘We Came To Play’

VA Tour Info Video

Hear directly from our Music Director, Frank Newton who recorded this informational video back in July 2017 as he explains his tour vision. You’ll also see performances from our music department students:

Thank you SO much for your support. We are grateful for anything you can provide. Your help
will go directly to making our year-long dream of this important musical tour a reality.


The Students and Parents of PVPA ‘We Came To Play’ Music Tour

PS – If for some reason we do not hit our full $26,000 fundraising goal, please know that funds
that come in for this tour will be used towards a scaled-down-but-equally-exciting performance
opportunity for these PVPA high school music ensemble students
