Grads to host Harvest Dance in Blackpool

This fun event will feature the talented Celtic, five piece group from the Coast, The Wheat in the Barley

Editor, The Times:

The smells and colours of Fall always remind us of the joy of harvest time. We’d like to let the community and surrounding communities know that the CSS grads of 2015/16 will be celebrating Fall by hosting a “Harvest Dance” on Saturday night, Oct 24 at the Blackpool Hall.

Back by popular demand, this fun event will feature the talented Celtic, five piece group from the Coast, The Wheat in the Barley. Warming up for them, will be Triple Dog Dare, our local trio of Doug Fenwick, Howard Mitchell, and Gerda Faber.

The Grads are hoping for great local support, please, as they try to raise funds towards the costs of their prom and dry grad ceremonies next June. They are a great bunch of kids who will provide tasty homemade snacks/bake sale, a silent auction, 50/50 draw, and door prizes. Beverages and a bar serving beer, ciders and wine will be available, as well as a Designated Driver program.

Parents will assist the Grads with this event and we hope to see many of you there for a great evening of lively music, visiting with friends and neighbours, and of course some dancing!

Tickets are available at the Wells Gray Inn, Pharmasave and Clearwater Secondary School. The cost of tickets is $20 per person in advance. At the door, the price jumps to $25.
