    Fisher Branch Talent Show Nets Big Numbers

     Keara Barret Travis Roberts jan242015CFRY Most Promising Performer Keara Barrett with Travis Roberts

    The town of Fisher Branch enjoyed some great live music last night as they hosted the CFRY Radio Amateur Talent Show. A total of 15 performers took to the stage to show their chops and give the crowd something to cheer at. It was another great success as they raised over $17,000 for sewer system upgrades at the Rec Centre and irrigation at the golf course.

    Taking home the prized CFRY Most Promising Performer Award was 11-year-old Keara Barrett as she sang a total of 3 songs, rounding out her night with Adele's "Rolling In The Deep." Other performers who were recognized included Perry Ross and MacKenzie Marks taking top spot in the "Live Music" category, while Cassidy Gauthier won in the "Karaoke" division. Both received $100 for their performance. Thanks to all of those who supported the evening, and for anyone looking to donate the address can be found below.

    Round 1 Voting is over and even though it was very close, there had to be a winner. By a slim margin, with 35% of the vote, Mil-Jeanne's Kyle Pettinger is off to the finals. Darren Miller was oh so close at 29% but it was not meant to be. He was a finalist in 2012.



    And now, Round 2. There will be 5 rounds. At the end, all 5 winners will compete for the big prize, Portage's Most Huggable Man 2015!
