Alice Larocque is shown
purchasing a raffle ticket on a beautiful food basket donated by
Desjardins’ Food Basics to the Valley Community Theater to help them
raise some funds that will go toward their goal of one day building their
own site in Valley East. Shown seated at the table, are Muriel Lalonde,

Desjardins, Secretary of the Theatre Board.
The long term goal of the
Valley Community Theatre is to one day have their own permanent building.
“A new building will mean that we don’t have to put up and take down
sets for our productions and rehearsals. It will be so much more
convenient to have a place to call our own and it will definitely increase
our image and exposure,” explained Sandra.
As well as the raffle on the
food basket, the group was holding their Annual Valentine’s Penny Table,
offering visitors to the mall chances to win an excellent assortment of
Alice, who has lived in
Hanmer for 45 years, was pleased to support the efforts of the Valley
Community Theatre. “This town has been very good to me all these years.
I love it here and like to see groups like this adding to our community.
The next production for the
Valley Community Theater will be held on May 26 & 27 when they host a
variety show entitled, “Intimate & Interactive” An Evening of
Variety. The location will be announced soon.
