Saturday’s Abiquiu Volunteer Fire Department fundraising dance netted nearly $1,000, but its real success was in meeting organizers’ goal to show the community a good time.
Ruth Ann Johnson told firefighters at the last AVFD meeting, “Our focus isn’t how much money we can make. It’s on bringing the community together to have fun.”
Goldie Benson told the Valley Daily Post “We succeeded in that. We had such a good time that we’re already planning our next dance and have chosen a date: November 9.”
The next event will be a dinner dance, and organizers are hoping to involve local 4H families.
