The fund-raising event of the year for Archuleta Seniors, Inc. will take place Sunday, Sept. 29, from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Oktoberfest will be held at the Quality Resort (formerly the Pagosa Lodge). Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children, and will be available at the door.
The ticket cost covers your German meal, a first drink ticket, German music and lemonade. Beers, wines and Zuberfizz root beer will be for sale at $3 each. A full bar is available in the restaurant, The View.
June Marquez, the MC, will make this a fun event, which also includes our local “Paukenschlagel Band” conducted by Larry Elginer, accompaniment by DJ Dusty for the singing of the German songs and, of course, the Chicken Dance.
Proceeds from this fund-raiser assist seniors over 62 of Archuleta County with their outstanding medical bills. In 2012, 43 seniors received over $15,500 from ASI. Come enjoy the fun and assist a great, non-profit organization.
