From Caitlin Featherstone-
Cape Ann TimeBank celebrated the beginning of spring with a crowd of dancing, grooving folks at Alchemy last Saturday. With over 100 people attending our “Let’s Get Together and Feel Alright” dance party at Alchemy, it was one of their biggest community events ever. The crowd was a mix of TimeBank regulars and members, interested folks and people drawn by the music of the band, Groove.
A raffle that included offers from TimeBank members piqued interest in the TimeBank and raised some money. Winners were excited about taking advantage of massage, kayak lessons, garden design, photo portraits and a night at Inn Magnolia.
The evening netted us about $1000 US dollars. This does not include the immeasurable goodwill and community awareness that the event also provoked.
Thanks to members who put up posters, distributed postcards, worked the door, sold raffle tickets and organized countless details that made the evening seamless and enjoyable even for the organizers.
Thanks also to James Auditore Events, Alchemy and Groove, without whom the event would not have been possible.
