Sunday afternoon, Feb. 9, 2020, the lodges of the Cumberland District held a Variety Show to raise money for the CDMA’s 2020 charity. This year our charity is the Cumberland Hospice.
The show was held at the Springhill Legion from 2 to 4:30pm. The district brothers, their families and many friends came out to support the event and we had between 90 and 100 people in attendance.
Besides the entertainment, which everyone came to see, we also had a 50/50 draw, a Chinese Auction table and a ticket draw on a prize of $250 worth of Gift Certificates.
Our MC for the show was Bro. Amos Margeson. He is the secretary of Laurie Lodge #70 in Springhill and it was his lodge that hosted this year’s Variety Show. In fact Bro. Amos has been the main organizer of this show. A great round of thanks needs to be afforded him for all the work that has been done to produce the show.
The show has been an unqualified success. The report on the money made will be given at our next CDMA meeting on Thursday, Feb. 27th.
The afternoon started off with our CDMA chairman, RW Bro. Alan Linkletter, taking the stage to thank the audience for attending followed by giving a short rundown on the charity work that our organization has been doing over the past few years.
After this Amos Margeson and Grant Jackson got things started with a few songs.
Below are two short videos of short clips of each performer that volunteered their talents for a good cause that afternoon. In the first clip we see Tenique Ross, Harold Miller, Arnie McNally and Allan Legere.
In the second video we have Carl Adams, Joanie Linkletter, Bob Ward and Mike Hannon.
During the show brothers from Laurie Lodge #70 put on a few skits for our enjoyment. Two of them are presented below. First is “The Invisible Bench” and second is the skit “Throwing Pebbles”.
Thanks to all the brothers for all the work put into making this event a success and thanks to all the folks who came out and supported us.
