Many thanks to our sponsors: CTC: Port Perry, Polito Ford, Pineridge Auto, CarQuest, Lakeside Restaurant, Gus Brown, Redman’s Store, Penny’s Mart, Moynes Ford, Taylor Ford, BBST Enterprizes, Krown Undercoating, All Flags, and Malcolm’s Auto.
Our chairman, Keith Brown, deserves a hand up for pulling this off while facing so many obstacles. Thanks, Keith, and Audrey, too. Thank you to all the Lions, family and friends who worked from early morning on into the afternoon with registration, the entrance gate, the 50/50 draw, the prizes, positioning the cars, judging the cars, and running the food booth.
The food booth requires much planning, looking at numbers from last year, ordering and picking up food and beverages, setting up the tent and tables, and setting up the BBQ. We rely on Rob Mairs to transport the BBQ, set it up, do much of the cooking, then take it home and clean it for next time. Sometimes it’s a short turnaround time, such as next time. We barbecue at CCPS’s Fun Fair at the school on Thursday, June 14th, then just two days later, we’re set up at the Port Perry Fairgrounds to barbecue at the ALS Walk. Thank you, Lion Rob.
Just a reminder that Nestleton Community Hall will be used for voting on Thursday, June 7th, so our regularly scheduled euchre will be cancelled for that week only.
Here are last Thursday night's euchre results: Jim Tucker finished in first place. Alma Manns came in second. Third was a three way tie between Linda Carder, Doug Day and Jocelyn Bradbury. There was a two way tie for fourth place between Phil Sibbert and Lorna Edgerton. Val Preibe was fifth. Bill Churchill had the most lone hands. Judy Westall had the low score.
Congratulations to all of our winners and we look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening.
Caesarea-Nestleton Euchre is held every Thursday, except holidays, at 7:30 p.m. in the Nestleton Community Hall; everyone is welcome.
