The fabulous annual Salmon Barbecue is coming up on Saturday, Aug. 11. We can almost taste it already! The long-standing, 57-year tradition of fundraising for our Community Hall will see a great lineup of entertainers and chefs.
We could use volunteers in the morning for set-up, during the day, and in the evening for clean up. If you would like to volunteer for the barbecue, we have lots of fun for you! We may need volunteers in other areas, but some of the spots available are: Friday night choppers and peelers (salads), set-up and tear-down of the stage and beer garden, serving beer, serving ice cream, doing dishes and of course, barbecue experts are always welcome! Please call Joyce, 250-247-8554 or Ute, 250-247-8114.
Every year Gabriolans wow us with their talent, music, dance, storytelling and variety entertainment and each year is always full of great surprises! If you are a Gabriolan and are interested in performing for the lip-smackingly enthusiastic salmon lovers, please contact Tsiporah Grignon at 250-247-8350.
This year’s 57th Annual Community Hall Salmon Barbecue is Saturday, Aug. 11. The barbecue itself is from 4 to 8 p.m. – a beer Garden, great salmon dinner for $15, wonderful entertainment of local yokels (both young and old) and all of your friends and family in one spot! Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Aug. 11.
Watch for the GICHA board members selling raffle tickets for a $300 GIC from the Gabriola Coastal Credit Union – special thanks to them for their support. See you at this year’s barbecue!
