Pontiac Pride Jamboree showcases roots and branches of Pontiac music: The Pontiac Pride went a little more uptown this year but it never lost its down-home feel.
“We went with the roots of Pontiac,” explained organizer Lorne Daley backstage.
“We had lots of good comments on the quality of the entertainment,” says Laurie MacKechnie, a member of the Quyon Lions Club and chairman of the Pontiac Pride committee.
Every year, Sunday afternoon at the Pontiac Pride show includes a special tribute. This year in observance of International Year of the Family, organizers decided to celebrate a local family: Francis and Ada Daley.
After the tribute to the Daleys, there was another special presentation to Father Cain, who is leaving Quyon after 19 years. Gail Gavan sang a song she had composed in honour of Father Cain.
