Last Chance to be at the old arena

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Hélène Hamel Stanstead

Comingup this Fri­day and Satur­day at the old arena of Stanstead Col­lege, is a se­ries of events “Good-bye to the ‘ol barn.” Many of us have very fond mem­o­ries of the arena and we need to be sure to say good bye to our beloved place.

This is the last month the arena will be open….the last one for­ever. On Fri­day the 8th. A great show, CABIN FEVER. Rated 16+.

It’s a true vaude­ville type act with wrestling-bur­lesque-rock ‘n roll com­bi­na­tion. The event is just like those we used to have at the old arena back in the 1950’s. Tick­ets are on sale for 20$ each or if you

buy 4 you’ll get the 5th ticket for free. Tick­ets can be pur­chased from me, Bev and Nel­lie Good­sell, at the Arena, Ziv and oth­ers. Ziv will be at IGA this week sell­ing tick­ets.

The doors open at 7:30 p.m. and we’ll start the show af­ter 8 p.m. There will be a Cash bar.

Please buy a ticket and get your friends to come out and have a good time. Then Satur­day, April 9th, its fam­ily day. With the great help of Pat Gau­tier and the Stanstead Cul­tural and Recre­ational Cen­ter vol­un­teers we will have some fun ac­tiv­i­ties.
