It was another successful night for the Wells Gray Lively Arts Society’s Coffee House on Saturday, the first event the group had put on since COVID-19 restrictions were eased last month.

Roughly 80 people visited the Clearwater Lodge at the ski hill to see the live performances of six groups, who played all sorts of tunes. There were songs about trains and about dogs, gentle hit songs such as “Rainy Night in Georgia” by Randy Hedlund and “Kingston Town” by Grant and Sandi, said WGLAS member Shirley Frost. The night finished with the classics “Born to be Wild” and “Mustang Sally” by Stolen Awesome.

“WGLAS are so grateful to live in such a generous community and look forward to seeing everyone again very soon,” said Frost.

The event was sponsored by the District of Clearwater and a donation was accepted upon entry. A tasty dinner, snack and hot drinks was on the menu.
