Full barn for Colby fundraiser

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Og­den

Harry Is­brucker’s barn in Og­den was the site of a very suc­cess­ful fundraiser for the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum last Satur­day evening. Over two hun­dred peo­ple at­tended the me­choui din­ner and barn dance, most stay­ing un­til the big bon­fire at the end. “We served two hun­dred and twenty meals and peo­ple were danc­ing un­til mid­night. I’d like to thank the

North Coun­try Swingers for their square danc­ing demon­stra­tion, Clas­sic Boule­vard for the great mu­sic, Perry Hodge who cooked the me­choui, Bleu La­vande for their neigh­bourly help, and Harry Is­brucker for the use of his beau­ti­ful barn. Every­one was danc­ing and laugh­ing, re­ally hav­ing a lot of fun. It was a mag­i­cal evening,” said Chloe Southam, the Direc­tor and Cu­ra­tor of the mu­seum.

The Stanstead His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety wel­comes new mem­bers and is look­ing for peo­ple who are in­ter­ested in vol­un­teer­ing at the mu­seum. For more in­for­ma­tion call 819 876-7322.

Ross Mur­ray and Deb­bie Bishop, mu­seum vol­un­teers, tend the bar with Board mem­ber Paul Amos stand­ing by.
