An Evening of Cowboy Poetry & Country Music

to benefit the Valley Oaks Seniors and the historic Avery Theatre

Plan to attend “An Evening of Cowboy Poetry and Country Music Saturday, Nov. 3rd, 7 PM at the historic Avery Theatre on Main St., Etna.

This event is the third of four 2012 “Scott Valley Bank at the Avery” performances in which Scott Valley Bank and the Scott Valley Theatre Company join forces to bring exciting benefit concerts to Etna’s Avery Theatre.  The collaborative effort is designed to promote cultural events at the Avery while benefiting both the Avery Theatre and other non-profits that provide service to youth, seniors, the needy, or the general community good in the way of arts, family entertainment or beautification.

“An Evening of Cowboy Poetry and Country Music” will benefit both the Scott Valley Theatre Company and Valley Oaks Seniors.  Proceeds from this event will provide: funding to improve and upgrade the Avery Theater; and support to the Valley Oaks Seniors for providing fellowship, community service, education, health and social welfare services to Scott Valley senior citizens for the betterment of the community.

Services offered at minimal or no cost to recipients by the Valley Oaks Seniors include:

  • Delivery of meals by the Madrone Hospice Meals on Wheels to low income and/or homebound senior citizens within Scott Valley
  • Weekly needle crafter’s workshop
  • Weekly bingo games
