MVHS alumni in benefit for Muskie Auditorium

While they were students at Mountain Valley High School, they performed in plays, sang and played instruments on the stage in Muskie Auditorium. Taking part in the arts was a critical part of their education and growth into adulthood.
When they heard about the water damage to the auditorium, it was only natural that they wanted to help. So they have organized a spaghetti dinner, show and Chinese auction with the proceeds benefiting the auditorium’s restoration.
The evening’s festivities will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 27 at the American Legion on Congress Street in Rumford. The show will start at 7 p.m. and go to 11:30. The cost of the dinner and show is $12. The dinner only is $8 and the show only is $5.
The show will include musical renditions from Alexa Fryover, Ashleigh Milligan, Bernard Sanabria and Alysha Laurinaitis, as well as Mark Garrido and his band. Each of the alums was well known for their musical talent while they were at MVHS.
Ashleigh Milligan explained her reasons for organizing the event.
She said, “We are doing this so the music program, and other arts classes won’t get cut. We think it is equally important for all kids to have the option and outlet to express their feelings through an art. We figured if we could raise money for the auditorium that it would help with budget cuts because the insurance didn’t cover all of the damages.”
The evening holds promise of a good meal and great entertainment as well as an opportunity to relax after the holidays. Please join these talented vocalists and musicians and support a great cause!
