Back by popular demand, the City Lites Band will provide the music for your dancing and listening pleasure at the Hebbertsburg Community Center on Saturday, June 7. The doors open at 5 p.m. and the music starts at 5:30. The band, featuring Marty Gibson (guitar and vocals), Flavie Miller (guitar and vocals), Glen Holverson (saxophone) and Wade England (drums), will wow the crowd with a variety of music from country classics to classic rock to ballroom and jazz. You request it, they can probably play and sing it. The Sweet T's will set the pace for line-dancing and clogging during the band's break times, and everyone, young and old, is invited to join them on the dance floor.
Whether you like to put your dancing shoes on and tear up the dance floor, or tap your feet, clap your hands and watch from the sidelines, you will have a great, relaxing time at the Hebbertsburg Community Center. It is good, clean family entertainment at its best, so bring your kids and/or grandkids with you. Don't forget the "Fun and Famous Cakewalk!" The Hebbertsburg ladies provide the delicious cakes (sometimes it's pies), and for just a $1 a chance, you might win the one you pick to share or to take home with you.
In addition to the great music, organizers will be serving their regular homemade spaghetti dinner (that's spaghetti, meat sauce, bread and coffee, iced tea or a soft drink) for just $6, with desserts and additional drinks at only $1 each. The meal, also prepared by the Hebbertsburg ladies, is served starting at 5 p.m., with the band playing from 5:30 to 8:30.
There is a $3 adult donation requested at the door, but children 16 and under are free. The monies collected are used to pay the band and to maintain the Community Center; all the workers are cheerful volunteers. The Hebbertsburg Community Center is just over 5 miles from the 4-way stop on Peavine Road in Fairfield Glade. Head north and follow the signs. At the Y in the road with a house in the middle, take the left fork a short distance and you'll find the blue pole barn Community Center on the left. Call Carolyn at 707-7837 with any questions.
