Guests enjoy their time at the St. Patrick’s Day Dinner and Dance

Steel Wheel Stampede committee gives Stettler and area a taste of St. Patrick’s Day

Stettler Community Hall was filled with music and an Irish fare as Steel Wheel Stampede committee hosted a St. Patrick's Day evening.

The Stettler Community Hall was filled with foot-tapping music and an Irish fare as Steel Wheel Stampede committee hosted an evening of good food and entertainment, St. Patrick’s Day Dinner and Dance on Saturday, March 18.

With an approximate number of 150 people who attended the event, funds raised will be going to JD’s Academy of Dance and Rhonda’s Danceology for their “exceptional performances” at the event.

“All the bottles from the bar have been donated to the Guatemala Mission Trip,” said Brandi Page, main organizer for the event and General Manager of Canalta. “The idea behind this event was for our SWS committee to put on a fun evening for the community and be able to give back.”

The Irish supper was catered by Teresa’s with performances from JD’s Academy of Dance, Rhonda’s Danceology that had a Highland dancer performing and there was a live band, Chillbilly from Hanna.

Guests could also get their pictures taken in a free, fun photo booth by Klay Tate Productions.

“Even though the event drew a smaller crowd it was a ton of fun with amazing food from Teresa’s Catering,” Page said. “We had some great door prizes to give away, which included two tickets to Dean Brody from Real Country, two weekend passes to the Ol’ MacDonald’s Music Festival, two $100 gift cards from Stettler Brick, two stools from Woodcraft by Dave donated by Wells Furniture, and a $75 gift certificate from Indulgence Catering.”

Page added that the event had high energy and great vibes for the entire night, and everyone seemed to have a great time.

“We have added some great new events to the weekend of SWS that we are sure the community is going to love,” Page said. “We would like to thank the SWS committee, my entertainment committee for all their hard work and support with this event, our sponsors, donors and of course all the wonderful people who came out to enjoy this fun-filled evening. Without them we wouldn’t be able to continue doing such great events in the community.”
