Cedar Community Hall opens its doors for the Cedar Community Harvest Supper on Saturday, Nov. 16th, at 6 pm.
“We’re beginning a new era at the hall,” says Wanda Zink, one of the dinner’s organizers. “New paint, new paving, and new people. And we’re also celebrating the area farmers who grow our food and all the people who contribute to our community.”
Roblyn Hunter, another volunteer, adds, “This is a chance to kick back and get to know your neighbours and other people in the area. It’s what the community hall was built for.”
Dinner will be catered by the Coco Café, with as much local produce as possible: an all-beef shepherd’s pie (with option of vegetarian lasagna), roasted root vegetables, focaccia bread, salads, and homemade pies with ice cream for dessert. A no-host bar, live music, silent auction featuring local artisans, and a Patchwork of Pies event complete the relaxed evening. Tickets are $25 each.
“What’s different about this dinner is that it’s truly a community event,” says another organizer Bobbi-Jean Goldy. “So many different groups and individuals are coming together to offer what they can, from 4-H to the Lions’ Club. Any money raised will help us lower the price for the next community meal.” Island Savings (Cedar Branch) and Graf Concrete and Iron are generous sponsors of the evening.
Since this is a catered event, get your tickets soon. In person at Cedar General Store and Friesen’s Hardware and Rentals. By phone at 722-2112. Or online at cedarcommunityhall.ca
Can You Bake a Cherry Pie?
Join in the fun on Nov. 16th and bake a pie to be served at the community supper later in the day. The Patchwork of Pies event is part of the harvest theme: bakers are encouraged to use local produce—apples, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, cranberries, blackberries. Any kind of crust is okay, but they should be in tin-foil pie plates. Bring your pie to Cedar Hall between 1pm to 3pm on Nov. 16. A friendly judge will hand out awards like “Most Colourful Pie” or perhaps the coveted “Pie-of-the-World” title. For info call 250-722-2112
