Our season-closing dinner has come together exceptionally well due to the support of many. I am pleased to state that 84 dinners have been ordered for our April 18th, 7:00 PM dinner at the St. Francis Harbour Hall, Route 344. (We are grateful that the St. Francis Harbour Ladies are hosting our gathering since our rink only has a legal capacity of 67 — and that is before we would have had to move in tables and chairs.)
Our evening will be less formal that last year’s 50th anniversary celebration for Chedabucto CC, but equally as enjoyable. Saturday — unlike all that happened at our rink during this past season — is a time for us not to be thinking of who is doing the ice; who is working the bar; who is bringing and/or preparing the food; who is overseeing the kitchen; who is in charge of cleaning, and the many other duties required for our rink-based events.
Saturday is going to be a social gathering where we can relax with good food, fellowship and deserved presentations. We will be presenting our Past Presidents Plaque to recognize and to honour those who have held the rink’s president’s position over its half-century of providing recreation and community activities for our region. The plaque has been paid for through the generosity of Hope Wright (in memory of Earl Wright, Chedabucto CC President 1968) and Haliburton PharmaChoice/Guysborough Pharmacy (in memory of Joseph Dort, Chedabucto CC President 1977).
Eight Junior curlers will each be presented with a curling broom from Sceles Realty (4) and Turning Point Curling School (4). Our leagues’ winning teams will also be receiving their due recognitions on Saturday evening.
The 84 to attend our gathering will include 11 Juniors, 8 past presidents, 25 guests (former members, Junior’s family members, Chedabucto CC supporters) and the balance will be our current members.
All of this will happen as we gather to enjoy a delicious roast beef dinner with all the trimmings plus mouth-watering carrot cake dessert (along with bar service).
Since we have already submitted the dinners’ numbers for the ladies to prepare for Saturday we cannot add to our list. However, if you had wanted to attend and did not get your name on our list, notify me and I’ll put your name on a waiting list in case a seat becomes available — but please realize that is will be a waiting list and not a guaranteed dinner spot.
My advance thank you to all who are enabling Saturday’s dinner to happen and to the many who make the Chedabucto Curling Club such a worthwhile and vibrant community organization.
