The East Coulee School Museum had a Celtic feel this past weekend.
The Museum hosted their second annual Highland Gala fundraiser Saturday night to help raise money for roof repairs.
"Yes, pretty good. We had close to 90 people," stated Museum Executive Director Barb Steeves. "We definitely wanted to get up to close to a hundred for this year and we did, so it was great."
Local group the Wayfaring Fiddlers opened for Celtic Fusion Illusion, both of whom are no strangers to East Coulee Springfest.
"Everybody enjoyed both bands and they both have a little bit different genres, but both had Celtic music as well and they were both fabulous," smiled Steeves.
She admits she is still tallying the total amount of money raised, but estimates it yielded six to seven thousand dollars, which will go towards repairing their roof at the museum.
"We have to raise matching funds to a grant we received for $36,000 so we're pretty much half way to matching that grant so that brings our total up past $50,000 (and) closer to the $60,000," noted Steeves.
The total bill for the roof repairs is expected to be $120,000 and Steeves feels optimistic about their fundraising so far. East Coulee Springfest is nearing and given the popularity of this year's Highland Gala, Steeves expects to host this event again in 2018.
