RoCA Fundraises with Barn Dance, Concert

Arts organization plans two fetes for June

Rockland residents can support local arts come June by heading to a barn dance, bourbon tasting or bluegrass concert.

(RoCA) is holding a handful of fundraisers to bring in money for their programs and exhibits.

On June 2, the arts organization is hosting a barn dance in Valley Cottage featuring The Old No. 7 Band, barbecue ribs and chicken, and a bourbon tasting.

One week later, RoCA will have another fete, this time focusing on bluegrass tunes. A fiddle, guitar and banjo trio will play RoCA's first-ever outdoor festival.

"They'll be jamming from 2 p.m. onward," said Marla Silverstein, the education program coordinator for RoCA. "And they're well-known in the bluegrass scene."

Blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged at the concert; True Food of Nyack will be providing eats.

"It's all for the good of the community," Silverstein added.
