A Splash Pad Fundraiser dance took place at the Barriere Legion on Saturday, Feb. 27, with all reports of the event being positive.
The fundraiser was organized by the band “Suddenly Able” in coordination with Legion staff.
Suddenly Able is a local rock cover band comprised of members Cal May, Patrick Mcneice, Matt Bond and Dustin Doherty. The group volunteered live music throughout the night for the fundraiser.
Quality Contractors provided free transportation throughout the evening with their bus, while Earl Celesta and Chelsea Harris provided volunteer DJ service. Celesta also sat in on the drums for a few songs with the band.
Entry into the dance was by donation to the Barriere Splash Pad project, with reports showing $1,151 was raised.
An additional donation box at the dance also raised $152 for Kathy and Chris Frezell who recently lost their house to a fire on Barriere Lakes Road.
