Valley Heritage Radiothon ready to roll April 7th

Annual Round-Up Dance set for April 14th at Renfrew Armouries
For 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, Valley Heritage Radio is on the air.
For seven of those days – beginning April 7 – there is more than great music flowing across the airwaves of the community-owned, not-for-profit station. There is also a clear message for members of the community that their help is needed and appreciated.

“Community memberships and annual donations are crucial to keep Valley Heritage Radio on the air,” said station manager Jason Marshall. “And this year we’re earmarking all funds raised to equipment upgrades including a new transmitter, computers and an air conditioning system. We’re also looking at some renovations to house the new equipment.”

The fundraising membership drive begins Sunday, April 7 and continues for a week. Volunteers and on-air personalities will be in communities across the Valley Monday through Saturday, as part of the annual “Out & About” visits. They’ll be bringing with them local musicians, to make it more of a party atmosphere.

The Out & Abouts this year will include Pembroke, Cobden, Eganville, Arnprior, Almonte, and Shawville. DJs will be announcing exact locations and times leading up to the event.

“We love getting out to all areas in the Valley, and we know some people want to support Valley Heritage Radio, but can’t physically make it out to the station,” said Marshall. “So we’re delighted to come to them.”

Even though the fundraiser kicks off at 7 a.m. on April 7th, the station is hosting its annual Pancake Breakfast at the Renfrew Legion on Saturday, April 6th from 8 a.m. until noon. Entertainment will be provided by the Kyle Felhaver Band.
