Special to The PREVIEW
Are you looking for something fun to do next Friday night? Has it been a while since you have had the opportunity to swing your honey around the dance floor?
Come with all your friends to help raise money for Our Savior Lutheran School, enjoy some mouth-watering brisket, dance with The High Rollers and bid on our amazing items in our silent auction. A cash bar with beer and wine will be available for those who would like to purchase and we will have nonalcoholic beverages for those who don’t.
If you are not familiar with The High Rollers, this is the perfect event to get to know them.
The High Rollers embody an array of musical talents. Originally conceived by bassist and songwriter Andy Janowsky (whose mother taught at Our Savior Lutheran School for many years), the five-piece High Rollers include Clay Lowder on drums; Jeff Johnson on fiddle, banjo and guitar; Darren Stroud on lead guitar; and Ryan McCurry on piano and Hammond organ. All of the band members are vocalists, thus harmony styling plays a significant role in their musical arrangements.
All proceeds from this event go toward the operation of Our Savior Lutheran School, a nonprofit organization that does not receive any federal funding. We currently offer three preschool classes, kindergarten through sixth grade and are excited to announce the addition of seventh grade next year. This event is our main fundraiser that helps us keep tuition costs down while growing, and to continue to provide an excellent Classical Curriculum in a loving, Christ-centered environment to the children of Pagosa Springs.
The Colorado Guys and Gals Country Hoedown will be held at 56 Meadows Drive in the Lutheran School gymnasium from 6 to 9 p.m. (cocktails start at 5:30 p.m.) next Friday, April 13.
Dress is country fancy and all are guaranteed to have a stompin’ good time. Tickets are $40 per person now and are selling fast; any remaining tickets will be sold at the door for $45, so don’t wait — get them now. Tickets can be purchased at the Lutheran Church office (731-4668 or 731-3512) or by contacting Pennie DeClark (903-3242). We can’t wait to see you there.
