A Barn Concert
Stay tuned for concert information on 2017!
We at MCPAWS want to express our gratitude to all who helped make last year’s Barn Concert a huge success: Mike and Sue Schaffer, who conceived of the idea to celebrate with gratitude, donated the gorgeous venue and worked so hard to get it decorated and ready to host some 350 people; Marty Haggard and his band mate Eugene Moles who entertained us for two hours in a tribute to Marty’s father, Merle Haggard.
Our thanks also to: opening band Solstice, of McCall; Angel Riders – a group of women on horseback riding for those battling cancer, cancer survivors, and loved ones lost to cancer – who helped folks find parking spots while dazzling with their horse-handling skills, including riders Toni Burnett, Twyla Cairns, Linda Hemminger, Brandy Padgett and Shirley Glemser; MCPAWS volunteers Rick & Judy Brake, Johnny and Joanne Miller, Jane Pickens and Joyce Rambo; and recent Meadows Valley High School graduates Devin Buys and Samantha Wittell with eleventh-grader Megan Ellis who also helped with parking.
A big shout of thanks to our generous sponsors because without them we could not have told attendees that 100% of their ticket purchases benefits the dogs and cats at MCPAWS: Roadhouse Java; Brewski Ranch; Mountain Corp, Mike Olson; Mile High Power Sports; Todd Webster; McNair Family; Dew Aircraft, Inc.; Randy McMahan, CPA; Austin Aviation, LLC; Falvey’s Earthworks; Ballenger Family; Blanthorn Livestock; Bizminders; MCPAWS Board of Directors and Executive Director; Capt.
