Get in the swim of things at our annual Fish Fry Dinner, Friday, Aug. 17 from 5 to 6:30 p.m.. Added bonus! Michael Tremblay returns to sing and play for your enjoyment starting at 4 p.m. in the club room (remember the Frugal Fridays special bar pricing!) and then on into the evening. For dinner, we will be deep-frying the battered fish outside on site! The $12 cost also includes John Ton’s cucumber and onion salad, tomatoes, coleslaw, bread, homemade tartar sauce, rice and/or French fries, and lemon dessert with chocolate drizzle.
The next BID euchre tournament will be held Sunday, Sept. 9. Register ($5 per player) by noon for an afternoon of play. Great prizes to be won! A homemade, delicious lunch is available for just $2.
With fall comes the return of our Author’s Evening series. We’ve decided to hold the events on Sunday afternoons to make it easier for those of you who want to “come from away” to attend. On Sunday, Sept. 30, from 2 to 4 p.m., meet author Gil McElroy.
Gil McElroy will be reading from his latest book, “Cold Comfort: Growing Up Vold War” published this past May by Talonbooks. It gives an “army brat’s” perspective of growing up in a family whose father’s military career was integral to the building of Canada’s electronic defence system, including the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line. An award-winning poet and curator, Gil McElroy land wife Heather live in Colborne. You’ll be sure to enjoy this opportunity to meet with the erudite and thoughtful author. There is no entry fee. We ask you consider a donation to support the Colborne Legion’s community outreach fund in support of the food bank and many programs.
It’s Frugal Friday every Friday in our club room. Regular beer and liquor becomes $3 each after 4 p.m. until closing at 10 p.m.. End the week on a frugal note with friends new and old. Arrive an hour early for one of our twice-monthly dinners and enjoy the savings!
