Pemberton concert a success

The beautiful barn in downtown Pemberton came alive on Friday, July 10, at Barnstorm and when the dust had settled, I think most would agree it was a Pemberton evening we won’t soon forget.

Wind howled through the barn (clearing the smoke) and a passing train with its signal blasting shook the rafters but once The Deslondes started playing, the sold out crowd filled the dance floor and all I saw were happy faces.

Many thanks to The Deslondes from New Orleans who were fantastic. Come back anytime boys. Thank you to the Pemberton Canoe Club who initially agreed this sounded like a good idea and came on board as the organizers. Thank you Maureen Douglas and the Pemberton Music Festival for the donation of two Pemberton Festival passes; Linda and Dave Den Duyf of Sabre Rentals for your amazing dance floor, Mile One Eatery for feeding the band and Deb Phare for always being so generous.

There were so many super volunteers with this event, but we couldn’t have done it without Garth and Val Phare, Wayne and Annette Wiltse, The Esseltine Family, Parveen Pehota, Rob Meilleur, Lonny and Susie Wray, Marnie Simon, Karen Tomlinson, Corinne and Derek Graves, Christie Hess, Harriet Van Wart, Cherie LeBlanc, the Pemberton Legion and Pemberton Farmers Market.

Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed this evening. We raised nearly $5,000 for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. It was an unforgettable evening for our family and reaffirmed what a special place this is to live.

The Fisher Family,
