Benefit dance

The Royal River Riders Snowmobile Club is hosting its annual fundraising dance Saturday, April 13, at the Gray American Legion, 15 Lewiston Road, Gray. The featured band is Something Stupid, a dance band made up of four self-proclaimed “weirdos,” who love to entertain people, whether it be musically or by making fun of themselves. Each show features a mixture of improvisational comedy and rehearsed music.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the dance will take place from 8 p.m. to midnight. Features include a cash bar, 50/50 raffle and a few door prizes. Tickets are $12 per person in advance or at the door. Call Andrea at 577-2563 or Candi at 831-0449, or send an email to
