Volunteers step forward when needed…..

Employees of ExxonMobil were at the curling rink on Saturday for their private rental of our facilities.  The rental was a fund-raiser for Chedabucto CC with food, labour and time volunteered by our members.

It is truly appreciated to be able to use the word “volunteered” with many hands making today such a success.

The first person to thank is Blair Brymer, a Chedabucto CC member and ExxonMobil employee, for suggesting and arranging this day’s rental.

Without playing favourites, but starting with yesterday’s cleaning within the Club house and washrooms, thanks to Betty for helping me do what needed to be done to prepare the building for our rink’s guests.

For fear of forgetting some of the many, no names here: The desserts, rolls, and biscuits were donated by our members. The purchased turkey was cooked and carved by Mike Nicholson and his wife, Cindy Lelliott.

In the kitchen for lunch cooking hamburgers and sausages were Phil O’Regan with assistance by Chris West. On bar duty were Brian Farrell, Mary K. Connolly and Holly Nahrebecky (our bar manager).

For supper’s preparation with veggies to cook, turkey to prepare, desserts to cut and dishes to wash were Kay Chisholm, Marion Brow and Margie Halloran.

To each and all, you are what makes the curling rink the gem that it is. Thanks to all for your time, donations and energies.

The next event to prepare for is the Ladies St. Patrick’s FUNspiel on March 13/14. Don’t be surprised if you get a call to assist — unless you are one of the ladies curling. Those gals curl; the rest of us work.

Best regards and thanks again,
