DarDeVaia inaugurates HQ

THE CULTURAL and social association from Armação de Pêra, DarDeVaia, will inaugurate its headquarters on September 17, at 6.30pm, at the well known restaurant and bar street, Rua Dr. José António dos Santos.

This will be the culmination of three years of fundraising by its members and takes place during DarDeVaia’s second anniversary celebrations.

The inauguration is hoped to attract members of the public, as there will be performances by Alentejo folk singing group, ‘Os Ganhões’, the Rancho Folclórico de Messines and the Rancho Folclórico do Lindoso. There will also be the opening of a photographic exhibition by young artists from Pêra, Alcantarilha and Armação de Pêra, who will present photographs that portray the three villages.

The celebrations start today (September 16) with the participation of the association in Portuguese TV show, ‘Praça d’Alegria’, in RTP’s Channel 1, and go on until September 18 with the III Equinox Concert, in which two philharmonic bands from Silves and Aljustrel (Alentejo) will perform, first separately and then together.
