Annual Bean Supper March 17

The board of the Fallen Alders Hall is holding its annual Bean Supper on March 17.

The board of the Fallen Alders Hall is holding its annual Bean Supper on March 17.

The purpose is to announce the start of a Memorial Garden, which is to honour the people of the district who have given their time and energy into the good of the Fallen Alders.

The  plan is to have the allotted space available for anyone in the community to plant a tree or shrub in someone’s memory or honour. This area  is located in front of the tennis court and toward the road.

The district surrounding the Fallen Alders was known as the Minto District and this project is the Minto Multicultural Memorial Garden.

Fallen Alders received a grant from the Minister of State for Multiculturalism for this project.

The invites have been sent out to those people who are known to the board and who helped the Fallen Alders Hall through the years. If you were among those and missed out on getting a invitation and would like to come, please call 250 338-9752 to be put on the list.
