Since the 2013 Kimberley Summer Theatre season left the KST Society deeply in debt, the remaining board members (Shirley Rossi, Roxanne Harper and Olive Mufford) have been working tirelessly to make sure everyone is paid. They are almost there, having raised every dime of an almost $40,000 debt through meat pie sales, spaghetti dinners, garage sales and raffles.

The latest raffle is for a patio furniture set and barbecue, which is set up at the corner of the Mark Creek Market parking lot on Wallinger. Draw date is July 31, 2015.

Ticket sales have been going well but unfortunately, last week someone stole the cash box out of Shirley Rossi’s car, which was parked in the Platzl parking lot. The back window of the vehicle was broken with a two by four.

In the cash box was the $150 float plus about $100 in tickets sold that day. What has Rossi worried is that they now have no record of the people who purchased tickets that day.

If you purchased a ticket on Wednesday, July 1 or possibly the evening before, Summer Theatre needs your information. The tickets stolen are sequences 0261 – 0280, 0341 – 0360, 0381 – 0400, 0401 – 0420, 0421 – 0440. If you could bring your information to the ticket selling location at the Mark Creek Market parking lot, it would be appreciated. Or you can call Rossi at 250-427-4561.
