Annual spaghetti supper in the works

Ashcroft Wellness Committee will be holding its third annual Spaghetti Supper and Auction on Nov. 7 in the Community Hall.

Well, fall is upon us and once again the Ashcroft Wellness Committee is planning a spaghetti fundraiser and silent auction to raise money to help with the 2015 Wellness Festival. Just a note that the committee has decided to change the name of the festival to Ashcroft Wellness and Music Festival as we feel this better describes what the festival has to offer.

The dinner will be held on Friday, Nov. 7 in the Ashcroft Community Hall, so mark this date on your calendars as it is always a fun community event.  The dinners have been sell outs for the past two years – the food is great, the atmosphere is fun and it is an inexpensive night out.

The silent auction is a very popular event at the supper and we have received some excellent donations over the past two years. We are hoping that the community will be as generous this year and come forward with items for the silent auction table. If you, or anyone you know would like to donate an item for the auction please call either Andrea Walker at 250 453-9402 or Deb Tuohey at 250 453-9019. You can also drop the items in to the Community Futures Sun Country office.

Tickets will be on sale soon at a the same price as last year, including a special deal for families. Ashcroft Bakery, Community Futures Sun Country  or committee members will all have tickets to sell.

The committee is still looking for some community members to help in various capacities. If you are interested please let us know.
