Students perform to boost Ramsey Scholarship funds

Two special performances have been planned for Feb. 1 and 2 in Harrison Hot Springs, honouring one of the Village's past mayors.

The Don Ramsay Memorial Scholarship Society is holding its Fifth Winter Festival of the Arts. All proceeds will go toward the scholarship funds, a $500 annual awarded to an eligble Agassiz elementary secondary student.

Melissa Weed, with Korbitron Studios in Harrison, said the festival will consist of two concerts, each starting at 6:30 p.m. at Memorial Hall.

On Friday night (Feb. 1) there will be a singer/songwriter showcase featuring Maggie and Desireah Eustache, Ashley Wall, Ashlyn Lowe and Kristen Walton.

On Saturday (Feb. 2) students from Korbitron will be performing.

Attendees will be treated to free refreshments, and it will be relaxed, coffee house seating.

The Don Ramsey Memorial Scholarship Society is non-profit, and the award goes to a student who plans on going into a career in the arts. The late mayor Don Ramsey was a well-known musician in the area.

Tickets will be sold at the door, and are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors, free for children.

"These are really great performers," Weed said. "They will have their own supporters there but we'd really like the public to come out and see them."
