Alf Carter Band leads Kinsmen fundraiser

Carter and sisters Karen Lonsdale and Barbara Stewart have been entertaining Mid-Island audiences for many years

The Ladysmith Kinsmen invite you to “another great evening with the ever popular Alf Carter Band” at Aggie Hall, June 11 starting at 5:30 p.m.

Carter and sisters Karen Lonsdale and Barbara Stewart have been entertaining Mid-Island audiences for many years with their ‘unique engaging style.’

Says the Kinsmen release: “You will be surprised at how they can take some modern day songs and put their touch to them, and you don’t have to wear ear plugs.”

Carter, a ‘magician’ on the accordion, makes it sound like there’s an entire band on stage. With Lonsdale on drums and vocals, and Stewart on percussion and vocals, the trio will get you dancing through a night to remember.

Also on stage will be Victoria’s Naden Military Band and a unique ‘conk-shell player.’

The evening features a roast beef dinner with all the trimmings, as well as the entertainment and prizes.  Tickets are $30.

Along with the evening’s fun, you will come away feeling good about supporting the Ladysmith Kinsmen.

Most recently the club has built a $200,000 adventure playground at Transfer Beach Park; and they just installed $10,000 worth of sports storage facilities at Forrest Field for youth soccer and football.

As well, the club has awarded five bursaries to local students, and has purchased an $8,000 electronic scoreboard  for the Little League field in Ladysmith.

Tickets for the evening are available at the Ladysmith Chamber office on Roberts Street and at the Ladysmith 49th Parallel Grocery. You can also get your tickets from Kinsmen members, or call Duck  Paterson at 250-245-2263.
