What happens when you bring 30 volunteer members together with an eight hour time-line on the first weekend of June? Add to the mix, compliments of local suppliers and merchants, 280 lbs. of Haddock, 250 lbs. French Fries, 50 kg. Coleslaw, 25 kg. Potato Salad, 40 lbs. Pasta, 60 doz. Bread rolls, 50 lbs. Secret sauce, various spirits and refreshments at a cash bar, plus 8 Slab cakes courtesy of Grahame’s Bakery. You have a “fine tuned machine”, preparing for another Masonic all-you-can-eat Fish Fry for our community to take advantage of with their friends and neighbours.
And that is what it takes to put on a meal for the more than 500 people who showed up on Saturday to experience the great food and sweet country sounds of Ron Donnelly & the Malboreens.
Paul Workman summed it up best by stating that “without the strong dedication from team members and local suppliers’ participation, as well as the community support, we would not be celebrating our 36th Anniversary….Thank you”. All proceeds are used to maintain the Masonic Lodge properties and donated to local services and organizations.
