TREENA MIELKE/Rimbey Review

This Saturday, Rimbey and area residents will have an opportunity to enjoy an evening of dining and dancing while contributing to a worthy cause.

The Masonic Lodge Kitchener #95 will host a ladies night April 30 at the Rimbey Drop In Centre.

The evening will feature Al Womack and his band from Lacombe and their renditions of tunes from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.

The ladies from the Drop In Centre will cater the full course dinner, which will feature two kinds of meat.

Proceeds from the event are to go to the Rimbey Volunteer Fire Department for equipment needed to fight grass fires.

Earl Giebelhaus, the junior warden for the Masonic Lodge Kitchener #95 said he is pleased to see the funds go to such a worthy cause. He noted the Rimbey fire department is made up of dedicated volunteers who deserve recognition from the community.

Giebelhaus, a long-time resident of Rimbey, said he has personally experienced the importance of the fire department.

“Forty some years ago, I had a fire in my home in the middle of the night and even though it was 40 below and 4 in the morning it only took them seven minutes to get there. In 15 or 20 minutes they had everything under control.”

Tickets for the ladies night dine and dance evening may be purchased from any of the local Masons or members of the fire department. Tickets may also be purchased at Stories and Sounds.
