Cutting rug for Villa James Shaw

The Shawville RA Hall was awash with country music and classic rock n’ roll as the Des Allen Band churned out hit after hit at the Villa James Shaw fundraiser dance. The organizers were hoping to raise an additional $10,000 to go along with the $20,000 already raised in the previous two years at the dance.

More than 100 people were at the Shawville Recreation Association Hall on Aug. 4 to dance up a storm and raise some money for a worthy cause in the process.
The dance was held to raise funds for the Villa James Shaw project – a proposed seniors care facility in Shawville.
The dance is in its third year and has already raised more than $20,000 for the project. Organizers were hoping that this year’s event could add another $10,000 to that tally.
The event was sponsored by the Shawville Rotary Club and all proceeds will be donated to the Villa James Shaw Project.
The event featured the Des Allen Band, who churned out country songs as well as some classic rock ‘n’ roll.
