FOCUS - DECEMBER 2015 49 The Scugog Council for the Arts is whis- tling a happy tune after another successful Mayors Gala for the Arts. A crowd of arts supporters gathered on November 5th to celebrate all things musi- cal and wonderful about Scugog raising much-appreciated funds for the SCA. The highlight of the night was a trio of perfor- mances by the winning singer-songwriters in the Scugog Tribute Song Contest. Richard MacMillan Elsa Jayne and Carol Salamone performed their tuneful tributes to loud applause and a standing ovation. Each was presented with a prize of 500. During the Gala the SCA also announced its new Spark the Arts grant. Funded by Arts Gala proceeds Spark the Arts grants will help fund projects or events that bring a new dimension to the arts in Scugog.
