CCB BENEFIT DANCE
by Kim Soucy
I have just finished reading the June newsletter. "The Importance Of
Finance," by John Mattioli, got me thinking again and gave me the
courage to propose an idea I came up with some time ago. John
mentioned several "old ways" of fundraising, which reminded me of the
benefit dances BESB used to hold. Personally, I miss them, and think
we should have one for CCB.
Because of my mother, Shirley Phelon, my sisters and I have been
attending such events for as long as I can remember. The Benefit Dance
was always my favorite, and I looked forward to it every year. In
fact, Roland and I cut our honeymoon short so we could make it back in
time for the BESB dance.
BESB would rent a hall, hire a D.J., and give out door prizes. You
would buy tickets for drinks, and each table would bring their own
munchies. Everyone had a great time, and a good chance to catch up
with old friends.
I think CCB could pull off a successful dance, but before we start
making plans we need to know how many people are interested and would
be willing to sell tickets. I have already called several friends and
know about 35 people who are willing to buy a ticket.
If you have any questions or comments, or would like to help plan a
benefit dance for CCB, you can call me at (860) 895-8157 or Shirley at
(860) 289-5697. We'd like to hear from you.
