Tickets are still available for a fundraising event being held in memory of a popular dance instructor.
The Dancing In The Moonlight country dance featuring Lee Dinwoodie is set for Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Schubert Centre. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the dance begins at 8 p.m.
The dance will help raise funds for the Blencoe Christmas Lunch, the favourite non-dancing event of local instructor Ruth Blencoe, also a former Kindale Developmental Association employee, who was killed in a car accident in February.
The Christmas Lunch was a catered feast held annually at the Vernon Recreation Complex. Blencoe’s widower, George, said his wife loved seeing the joy that the celebration brought to a segment of the population in the community often forgotten at Christmas.
George hopes to bring the event back as the Blencoe Christmas Lunch.
The dance will help raise funds for the lunch.
Tickets are $30 in advance from Bannister Honda, White House Mortgages and the Schubert Centre. The price for tickets at the door will be $40.
