Patrons of Freson IGA may have felt they were walking into a concert last Friday as shoppers were able to get a taste of what’s in store at the second annual Believefest concert coming up in Drumheller on August 15.
Jay and the Songbirds, based out of Edmonton is one of the headlining acts of BelieveFest, and they performed at the store. As well, IGA supported a hot dog sale with proceeds going towards The Salvation Army’s goal of renovating the food bank, making it more efficient and safe. The Salvation Army continues to solicit donations of funds, building materials and know-how to complete the project before the Christmas season arrives. Pictured are (back; l-r) Lieutenant Matt Sheils of The Salvation Army, Freson IGA manager Darryl Jacques, Doug Parker and Justin Hamilton of Jay and the Songbirds, Believefest promoter Gerald Martynes and Louis Mate of Jay and the Songbirds with (front; l-r) Greg Wright and Phil Griffin of Jay and the Songbirds.
