MEXICO -- On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, young and old alike enjoyed the music of the 43 North Band at the bandstand of the Mexico Recreation Park.
The band featured Shawn Theriault, who has opened for Miranda Lambert, Uncle Kracker and more) on lead vocals and guiter, with Steve Brown on keys and vocals, Chris Penney playing bass/vocals and Jack Rioux on drums/vocals. Theriault, a 1988 graduate of Rumford High School, is the son of Mexico Police Chief James Theriault.
A premiere modern country party/dance band, based in Portland, the 43 North Band performed country music and classic rock tunes for an appreciative audience.
This event was a fundraiser for Mexico Police Explorers, Post 364.
Mexico Police Lt. Roy Hodsdon said the fundraiser did well, with funding to be used to send someone to the summer Police Explorer Academy (a cost of $3,500 each) as well as needed boots for the Explorer Post members.
The Mexico Police Explorers welcome youths between the ages of 14 to 21 from all over Oxford County interested in law enforcement. For more information on the program, call 364-5686.
