Fall Supper Tickets are Going Fast!!!

It is just over one week away! We are pleased to announce that the countdown to the Annual Fall Supper has begun in earnest! This ever-popular event will be held on Saturday, September 14th at the Legion Hall.

We are grateful for the generous assistance of our local community members and for the Legion Ladies Auxiliary who have been extremely busy worker bees, diligently preparing for our delicious Fall Supper.

Tickets are still available at the Library and Ingham Pharmacy.  Please get your tickets early as the evening usually sells-out. There are two sittings – 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.; $15.00 for adults and $7.00 for children (12 and under).  Reserved seating is available for groups of eight or more.  Please call the Library at 204-345-2653 with any inquiries.

We are still in need of grocery items as well as volunteers to help us the day of the supper. The wish lists for groceries and volunteers are posted in the library. We sincerely appreciate all the help and support we have received from our extraordinarily giving community.
