Saturday, May 30th was a fun & musical day at Fish Fry Park in New Boston. The fundraising event was organized by Dave & Missy McDonald, whom is also in charge of the Fish Fry entertainment. I was in total awe of the musical talent that came out to help support the New Boston Fish Fry fundraiser.
Drums, guitars, & sound system were furnished so that all that wanted to could join in, plus many musicians also brought their own instruments. Even the youth that got on the make shift stage to play were amazingly talented. Zach Simpson started the “Star Bangled Banner” while Mason Vestal and little David McDonald followed along for a salute to our country that thoroughly impressed this Veteran.
Along with the above mentioned youth, musicians that joined in were Dave McDonald, Clint Nelson, Ben Barnard, Doug Ferguson, Rich Vestal, Lance Dale, Tom Dale, David Shearer, Marc Sholewater, Mike Whitehall, Derek Schmitt, Mark Shearer, Mark Fourdyce, & Bill Rudd on the harmonica. If any musician was missed, my sincere apologies - I tried to write everybody all down but may have missed a few.
Food & beverages were served by Missy McDonald and a few local children. Dale Beam cooked the pork chops. Terri Dale assisted by helping with 50/50 & Small Mart gift certificate raffles. Winner of the 50/50 raffle was Chris Defrieze, which he generously donated back for the cause. Mike Dale won the Small Mart gift certificate. $600+ was raised for the Fish Fry.
