On Sunday, Aug. 11 at the stage at City Park, Habitat for Humanity Boundary (HFHB) will be sponsoring an evening festival of local storytelling, song, dance and music.

All the performers are donating their talents to the event, which will be a fundraiser for the latest HFHB project, the Multi-Agency Accommodation Project or MAAP.

The stage will be all dressed up with a colourful backdrop, lights and a ring of bleachers for the audience.

To add to the fun, food vendors from around the Boundary will be selling dinner, drinks and goodies to the audience.

During the performances HFHB will be passing the hat. seeking the audience’s donations to help “raise the roof” for the new combined Whispers of Hope thrift store and BETHS emergency shelter.

The entertainment will start at 4 p.m. with an hour of storytelling and children’s songs for the younger set.

Performances by Rosemary Phillips, Sheila Dobie and Lea Barkhizen are meant to get the kids up close.

Then there is two hours of the mellow songs of the Not Yet Duo, Dave Soroka and Christopher Stevenson.

After that, two rock bands will crank up the atmosphere before Luminosity salutes the darkness with its own unique dance entertainment.

Bugsy Blues (a.k.a. Gary Smith) will not only MC the entire event, his rock band the Sputniks will raise the energy level right until 10 p.m.

The community is encouraged to come enjoy the music and the food.

By giving a donation at the event, people will be “Raising the Roof” on a much needed facility.

Please come to enjoy and to contribute to this unique celebration.
