The CMS Big Band Dance held June 8th was a resounding success! The annual event is held to provide an opportunity for Cochranites to have a great night out dancing to the big band sound and for Riverside Jazz to perform for the community. Sometimes it even makes a profit and CMS has a history of donating those funds to community concerns.
This year the Cochrane Music Society donated the Big Band Dance profits of $750.00 to the Red Cross to assist the Alberta Flood Relief.
Many individuals and organizations have volunteered time, effort and funds to the clean up and rebuilding after the catastrophic flooding of June 20th. The Cochrane Music Society is glad to be able to contribute to this mission.
