“CAN’T STOP THE FEELING” – Huntingdon Special School District Director of Schools Pat Dillahunty and granddaughter, Charlie, perform in “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”

The thirteenth annual Melodies show held at the Carroll County Civic Center May 11 and 12 raised over $4,000 for Carroll County’s Relay for Life, according to Huntingdon Special School District Director of Schools Pat Dillahunty, who directed the show.

This year’s event was in memory of Larry Thomason who died this year and was always a part of the show as a singer and musician. He would either sing a solo or with the AWOL group of men. Sometimes he would even play the piano.

Lee Carter spoke of Larry’s dedication to the show and how he always said at the end of the show, “Well, Miss Pat, we made it through another one.”

The show contained 19 acts that provided crowd-pleasing entertainment.

Friends Margaret McDaniel and Charlotte Horn, both of Huntingdon were among the spectators on Thursday night.

“I always come to support it and it’s such a good show as well,” said Margaret. Charlotte said that she lost both of her parents to cancer.

“It’s a good show and for a great cause,” she said.
