Bored of Education hits a high note with Annesley crowd on a weekend full of events in Grey Highlands

Bored of Education band performing at Annesley United Church

BY SOUTHGREY.CA STAFF — Bored of Education have been entertaining audiences of all ages, tackling several musical genres over many years. On Sunday night, May 7, the well known local area band brought their rock and roll groove to the Annesley Church in Markdale.

Georgian Triangle’s favourite party band worked their way through a set list that featured songs spanning three decades of pop classics by a variety of artists like Frank Sinatra, Styx and Gordon Lightfoot.

This was the band's third visit to Annesley and it brought a dedicated crowd to the beautiful 116-year-old facility on a night when many people preferred to stay home and watch the Maple Leafs lose another playoff game to the Florida Panthers. In fact, the game was also shown live on the many screens of the church sanctuary during intermission.

The Bored of Education event was yet another terrific performance scheduled in the Annesley Church this year — Grey Highlands both oldest and newest community event venue. But the weekend proved to be a harbinger of a busy summer to come, with a multitude of things to watch and do.

Also on Sunday, in the garden of Grey Gables in Markdale, The Grey Highlands Peace Committee held a dedication ceremony honouring King Charles III Coronation, unveiling an oak tree in commemoration of the newly-crowned Monarch. On the day before — Saturday, May 6 — King Charles III Coronation Ceremony was viewed on a big screen in the Annesley Church sanctuary, followed by a light lunch and teas were served in the Fellowship Hall, provided by Tastea Treats of Markdale.


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
