We’re heading into fall and the pre-Christmas season. There are several events in November to mark of your calendar!
- The annual Colborne Legion-sponsored Santa Claus Parade will be held 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22.
- The annual Festival of Trees is returning to Colborne Legion Nov. 19, 20, 21 and 22. Colborne Legion donates the space so the dozens of Christmas trees decorated by contributing businesses, families, organizations and individuals can be viewed by the public. Enjoy some seasonal sweets and hot chocolate! The trees are beautiful — and you have the opportunity to purchase tickets to win your favourite tree! All proceeds go to support the Colborne Public School Music Program (the multi-award-winning kids thank you for your support!). While the festival is open, feel free to drop off food bank donations. For more information, contact Chad Morford at 905.355.2532 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
- Because of the festival of Trees, our November mid-month dinner will be held Friday, Nov. 14.
It’s Frugal Friday every Friday in our clubroom. Regular bar beer becomes $3.25 each and bar liquor $3.50 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!
Welcome all to our Labour Day weekend Steak and Hamburger Barbecue Saturday, Aug. 30! We share our annual community traditional get-together with the many visitors attending the Auction Barn Jamboree! A great way to celebrate our friends and summer acquaintances, serving 5 to 6:30 p.m.. Cost is $15 for the steak dinner, $10 for the homemade hamburger dinner. Includes fresh corn on the cob, two salads, sliced tomatoes, baked potato, tea, coffee and ambrosia dessert.
Our local community news source, the website Cramahe Now, will be no more as of Sept. 1. To say “thank you” to Bob and Lesley Owen, proprietors of the on-line news site, we invited everyone to drop by the Colborne Legion Sunday afternoon, Sept. 14, 2-4 p.m. and share a cuppa tea or coffee and delectable munchies by Donna Rusaw of Black Dress Catering. For five years, Bob has traversed Cramahe Twp. at all hours of the day and night to bring us news of our local community. The Owens are now going to enjoy a much-deserved retirement! We all owe them a big vote of thanks for keeping us informed and up to date. Come on out and tell them so!
Friday, Sept. 5, the monthly Roast Beef Dinner is being served 5-6:30 p.m.. Just $12 per person, the meal includes homemade gravy, roast beef, potatoes, cooked fresh veggies, chef’ssalad, bread, tea, coffee and, of course, dessert — butter tart squares.
