Cowboy Cabaret fun for a cause

Cowboy Cabaret was another grand success. Cottonwood Horse Park’s ownership just got closer to fruition for the Kachemak Bay Equestrian Association. Great music, poetry, chuckwagon supper, dessert  auction, silent and live auctions, and fun had by all — what more could anyone ask?

We want to thank all the wonderful businesses who donated, especially Emerald Air for two bear-viewing trips, True North for a kayak trip for two and Marian Beck for a trip for two to the Saltry, a night in Halibut Cove and an original painting. What would we do without you?

Cowboy Emcee Extraordinaire, Mark Marette, rode in from the head of the bay — keeping the action lively and sharing poetry. Tim Quinn is the leader of our Cowboy Cabaret, and he and Dave Gerard manned the sound system. The Ukulele Society entertained us with delightful western music. We were treated to a rare performance by the S Curves — Sunrise, Sally, Sue and Sharon. A special thanks to Cindy Birkhimer, Jackie Eisenberg, Sandy Arndt, Renee Eidem, Sue Drover and Robert Archibald. Alice’s Champagne Palace continues to be the perfect venue for this fundango — supplying food and ambiance. 

Until next year.

Happy trails,

Roberta Highland, president
