The Columbia Valley Music Society held the second Hard Times Dinner at the Edgewater Community Hall on the evening of January 29.

Good times and good food were enjoyed by all in attendance, with a baked salmon dinner served, followed by live music.

Music was provided by Barry Moore, Anne Jardine, Larry Newman, Alison Loewen, John MacRobbie and Mickey Maione.

Bad weather did deter some attendance, as road and driving conditions were poor. Still, light crowd or not, the event went on with much success and was thoroughly enjoyed.

The Columbia Valley Music Society hosted the first Hard Times Dinner in 2010. They hope that the Columbia Valley enjoys an economic improvement over the coming years that will help the community move forward through these “hard times”.

The Edgewater Community Hall, for example, has enjoyed extensive improvements and renovations over the last few years, including a new floor, kitchen and concrete deck.

The Columbia Valley Music Society regularly hosts musical variety shows at the Edgewater Community Hall and has recently acquired a new Bose sound system.

The Edgewater Community Hall will be 75 years old in May this year, and a birthday celebration event is being planned.
