Dancing shoes and a fire boot will help folks put their best foot forward for the La Conner Firefighters Association dance fundraiser May 21 (6-10 p.m.) at Maple Hall.
Proceeds from “Stop! Dance! & Roll!” will support, most notably, the traditional community Easter Egg hunt at Pioneer Park and the recently launched grief basket project.
“The dance is also a way to thank the community for all its support spokesperson Jaime Stroebel-Reinstra told the Weekly News. “It’s been a difficult past two years with the pandemic and this is a way to bring the community together to celebrate our amazing place we get to call home.”
usic is provided by DJ Tom, said Stroebel-Reinstra, and there will be a photo booth, firefighters’ support tee-shirts for sale at $25 each, a 50-50 raffle and the opportunity to “fill the fire boot,” a long-established way of contributing – one dollar at time – dating to the 1950s.
