Friends in Action sponsors dance as fund-raiser

ELLSWORTH — In a little more than a year from now, the Friends in Action (FIA) group is scheduled to move into its renovated and refurbished home at the Moore Community Center on State Street.

That’s where the group, formed in 2003, has been based in recent years after the city offered use of the space.

A yearlong renovation project has just gotten started at the Moore School, and so since July 1 FIA has been sharing space with Washington Hancock Community Agency on the Bucksport Road.

As a way to celebrate the renovation, as well as the group’s own 10th birthday, FIA is hosting a dance party on Saturday, July 20, the first day of the city’s big 250th birthday bash.

The dance will be held under a big tent at Knowlton Park on State Street, and will feature the music of classic rock band Whoopy Kat. The dance starts at 7 p.m.

The dance will be preceded by hors d’oeuvres from Big Cats Catering and Chef Alex Grant and a cash bar starting at 6 p.m. at the same location.

Tickets are $20 for an individual or $30 for a couple. Anyone attending the dance must be 21 or older and must have their identification with them. Tickets can be purchased by calling FIA at 664-6016.
