Working in the present while preserving the past for now and the future

2010 Annual Wine & Cheese

December 10, 2010

A Wine and Cheese Fundraiser was held on December 9, 2010, at the Lac du Bonnet Community Centre.

The celebration format has not changed much through the years. A popular draw to the event is the fish smoked locally by one of our members. In additon, a wide variety of appetizers were offered together with crackers and cheeses. Wines from many countries, and including some Canadian beers, were offered for sale. The free punch as always is a popular refreshment. Towards the end of the evening coffee was served together with a wide assortment of home-made dainties.

Each year as in the past years singers and musicians from the community volunteered to entertain the crowd. This year it was the sweet voice of Esme Boone and the gentle sounds of a golden harp that she hand-crafted for herself. The relaxing ambiance is helped by low overhead lighting and the glowing candlelight centering each table.

The crowd generously participated in the purchase of items presented for auction. Also available were 50/50 tickets and door prizes.

It is through the generosity that our community displays at this type of fund-raiser that will allow the Society to complete the building renovations and open it as a museum during the summer of 2011.
