Athens – The first annual Country in the Park held in Athens on Saturday raised over $5,000 for Community & Primary Health Care (CPHC).
Close to 200 people attended the country music event featuring five local country singers who performed outside on the school grounds of Pineview Public School
It featured performances by Craig Curtis, Angie Halladay, Jordy Jackson and Ron & Joy Edgley. The Athens Lions Club hosted a BBQ and the Athens Fire Department hosted the bar.
The event was so successful that organizers are already talking about the second annual Country in the park next year.
CPHC has been providing strength, hope, and empowerment to seniors for over 100 years. Whether it’s you, your neighbor, a family member or a friend, at some point in your life, you or someone you know will benefit from at least one of the many programs that CPHC delivers throughout Lanark, Leeds & Grenville.
