The Special Events Committee of the Episcopal Church of St. John Baptist will host a benefit community dance featuring local band Rave On Friday, June 24 from 7:30 to 10 p.m. at Watts Hall, Main Street/Route 1.

This chem-free event offers an opportunity for all ages and families to enjoy an evening of a variety of music and dancing. Refreshments will be available.

The Waldoboro-based Rave On features drummer Stephen Grima; guitarist and vocalist Micah Hall; bass guitarist Mike Cash; and vocalist Laura Perkins. The group has quite a following in the Midcoast area and makes a point of performing a benefit event every so often as pay-back to the community.

Proceeds from this concert and dance will go towards St. John’s community outreach. Admission will be $10, free for children younger than 13.
