Producers of the Reilly Springs Jamboree brought the show to town with a Christmas Dance on Saturday December 9, 2017 at the Sulphur Springs Senior Center as a benefit the building fund for a new Senior Center.
Classic country music ruled the evening as Roger Reed and the Sunshine Band’s Gary Jones and Bill Langley kept the couples dancing. Guest singers Shanna Carter and Janet Reed performed favorite Christmas songs, Don Woods Jr. delivered traditional and redneck country, and Enola Gay sang the blues. There was also more than a little comedy and laughter. Center Director Karon Weatherman and volunteer Jan Massey spread good cheer with punch and cookies amid the beautiful holiday decorations throughout the center.
About forty persons attended the dance and others stopped by with checks to donate to the cause. At the end of the evening, the Jamboree was able to donate $450 to further the plans for building a more spacious building to better serve the needs of the Senior Citizen community in Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County.
Plan to follow the Reilly Springs Jamboree back to their home stage in the New Year, with a country music stage show on the third-Saturday night of every month at the Reilly Springs Community Center, Hopkins County’s original music venue. The January 20, 2018 Jamboree will be a Gospel Extravaganza featuring Psalms 100 and Dallas artist Mary Fay Jackson.
