Fort McMurray Fundraiser at Almonte Community Centre

8:00pm
For most of us, watching the devastation that happened in Alberta was something short of a horror movie. For some though, it was their reality. A reality that will take a long time to recover from – emotionally and financially. As always, our local musicians have banded together to help. Join us for an evening of exceptional music in efforts to help raise some money to help with their journey.
As always, Valley Heritage Radio is on hand to help their community. Thank you Jason Marshall, Christa Pare and Mike Cloutier for MCing. I think we can squeeze a song out of Mike and Christa with Jason on Kazoo! Amazing talents from Jamie and Jeff McMunn, Arleen Quinn, Unwound, Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Famers, Dale Ducharme, Mike Hamelin, Rodger Coulombe and Brian Ostrom. Doug and Pam Champagne, George Allen Chenier SR, Johnny and Jack Spinks, Maureen Young, Chris Metcalfe, Marc Gossett, Theresa Bennet Scott, Gord Barnes, and Cooper Street.
You don’t want to miss this show! $10 per person, with all proceeds going to help!

Fort McMurray Fundraiser at Almonte Community Centre

8:00pm
For most of us, watching the devastation that happened in Alberta was something short of a horror movie. For some though, it was their reality. A reality that will take a long time to recover from – emotionally and financially. As always, our local musicians have banded together to help. Join us for an evening of exceptional music in efforts to help raise some money to help with their journey.
As always, Valley Heritage Radio is on hand to help their community. Thank you Jason Marshall, Christa Pare and Mike Cloutier for MCing. I think we can squeeze a song out of Mike and Christa with Jason on Kazoo! Amazing talents from Jamie and Jeff McMunn, Arleen Quinn, Unwound, Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Famers, Dale Ducharme, Mike Hamelin, Rodger Coulombe and Brian Ostrom. Doug and Pam Champagne, George Allen Chenier SR, Johnny and Jack Spinks, Maureen Young, Chris Metcalfe, Marc Gossett, Theresa Bennet Scott, Gord Barnes, and Cooper Street.
You don’t want to miss this show! $10 per person, with all proceeds going to help!
