MoM gets rolling

Music on the Mountain is back on the fundraising trail again this year.

Music on the Mountain is back on the fundraising trail again this year. After another shortfall last year, the young nonprofit society has begun to ask for funding for this year’s fest.

Last year’s festival was $8,680 short of breaking even, according to their financial statement. But organizer Lionel Conant has been working on this year’s festival despite the hardships involved.

Conant spoke at a recent council meeting, asking mayor and council to support this year’s festival, and council has again allocated $3,000 towards the festival.

A recent house concert at Conant’s home was also to help raise awareness and help with fundraising efforts.

Dave Parsons of Prince George and Joey Only of Wells, B.C., both performed at the private performance, along with local talents Harold Prince and Jerusha Turgeon.
