A talent show to remember!

no white bgrnd

Join us to celebrate Paul Penner's retirement and lifetime of contributions to Grebel during Paul's Paul-a-palooza Re-tie-erment Party.

Wear your best neck tie and enjoy the atmosphere of a theatre-themed talent show where at Paul's request, we're bringing back favourite performances from across the eras!

Light refreshments will be served.

As a way to commemorate Paul's contributions donations can be made online to the "E. Paul Penner & Dolores Harms Penner Student Council Capital Endowment Fund." Earnings will be used to fund equipment and furnishing enhancements in the student residence.

The Evening's Acts:

  • Ryan Dunham and Friends
  • The Bearded Baritones (Dan Balzerson, Doug Epp, Josh Matthews and Jake Redekopp)
  • Laura Enns and Dan Root
  • Pentatonix (Anna (Kuepfer) Wright etc.)
  • Colin Funk, Selah Woelk and Joel Woods
  • And more!

Wear your best Paul a-tie-er.
