Wish you were on the beach? On January 27 in Munson, the Munson Community Association brought the beach to you!
"I think that everybody is so tired of all the snow and winter weather, for about six or seven hours, we all forgot what it was like outside, and we partied like we were on the beach. It was great!" exclaimed Dave Eberth, who was part of the organization commitee for the event.
There was finger food, summer themed drinks, and even a surfing contest! Eberth expressed, "It was really, really good, we nailed the snowiest day of the month, but people came out and they had a great time."
Despite the cold, there was a prize for the person who came with the best beach wear.
"We sold about 130 tickets, and although we didn't have everybody come out because of the weather, we raised between $2,000 and $3,000, so that was fantastic!" Eberth said that the money raised will go to helping the Munson Hall pay down their debt.
