More than 250 people came out in the freezing weather to see the amazing talent of the students and faculty of the University of Maine at Fort Kent campus and from the community last Saturday at the fourth annual UMFK Alumni Association Talent Show fundraiser.

The featured acts included vocal, instrumental, and a variety of dance performances. Each performance charmed the audience, as from the many applauds and whoops with joys, that music lovers heard throughout the auditorium.

Proceeds from the event, in the amount of $1,030.00, will benefit the UMFK Alumni Association scholarship fund and the Greater Fort Kent Ecumenical Food Pantry.
