Skate the Lake, January 28th & 29th, 2017

Skate The Lake on Rick Mercer Report

The "Taste of Italy" fundraising dinner is now over, if the comments from the people that attended is any indication then it was a major success.
We received many compliments about the food, the variety of pasta dishes, the fabulous desserts and especially the decor.

There are a lot of people to thank for making this a success, the food prep team of Chris Good and Ken Maxwell; the fantastic desserts Connie Scott & June Finless
the same two ladies were also responsible for the decorations, I'm not sure but it may have been inspired by Billy Joel's "Italian Restaurant".

Kudos to the entire cooking, serving and clean up crew, Bob & Lori, Doug, Christine B, Josee & Mike, Sue W and her 2 sons, Matt & Adam, Tom G, Marcia M, and Hanna,
although in Hanna's case I don't know if eating two desserts counts as clean up.




Thanks to everyone for your support.
the winner of the 50/50 draw was Don Orr
