Second Time Around supports local entertainment

Winding Rivers Arts and Performance Society recently received a $1,000 donation from Second Time Around.

Winding Rivers Arts and Performance Society (aka WRAPS) would like to gratefully acknowledge Second Time Around for their donation of $1,000 towards programming for Ashcroft and area residents. It is through the generous donations from volunteer organizations such as Second Time Around that we are able to bring Music Concerts, Plays, Workshops, Summer Youth and Children’s Arts Programs and Music in the Park to our community.

Be sure to check out the website to find out upcoming events in our community.

Up next is “Cougar Annie” with Katrina Kadoski on Sunday, March 15. It is a matinee performance with stories and songs of a resourceful woman’s adventures with wildlife and husbands on her Island farm, and it begins at 3 pm at St Alban’s Hall in Ashcroft (501 Brink Street). Tickets are available at the Ashcroft Bakery, UniTea and Nature’s Gifts.

Again, many thanks to Second Time Around and our other sponsors and donors for their support in bringing Arts to our area.
