‘Backdoor Boogie’ starts Sept. 10

Help the Roscommon Knights of Columbus, Prince of Peace Council, to distribute food to local food pantries in Roscommon and Crawford counties by attending the “Backdoor Boogie” food- for-families fundraiser.

Save the date – the “Boogie” starts up again Sept. 10 at the hall located at 165 West Federal Highway in Roscom­mon.

The event will feature guest artists “The Skee Brothers” and many other song stylists and musicians from near and far, who will perform many old fa­vorites from the 50s, 60s and 70s. A big jam session will close the festivities.

The evening will last from 4 to 8 p.m. Food and beverages will be available at a nominal charge, including beer, wine and assorted libations. Soft drinks and coffee will also be available.

Proceeds from this event will be used to help Prince of Peace Council 6593 in its effort to support the food pantries in the community with additional funds. Admission is free, but free will dona­tions would be greatly appreciated.

This event has been a sell out in the past so come early to get a good seat.

Last year the council donated funds to these organizations: First Congrega­tional Church, St. Vincent de Paul, of Roscommon, Roscommon County Food Pantry at Project H.O.P.E. of Houghton Lake and the Christian Help Center of Grayling.
