The Courtenay and District Fish & Game Protective Association is cruising back in time to the Fabulous ’50s, rockin’ and rollin’ to bring its annual Banquet Fundraiser to the Florence Filberg Centre, Feb. 24.
The banquet is open to the public, so bring your friends or co-workers and book a table for eight and have a blast from the musical past. Dig out your poodle skirts, pedal pushers or greaser outfits for a prize for best male and female costume. Bring your dough for the bar, raffles, and silent and live auctions.
The association is “cranked” on wildlife conservation and habitat management. It continues to work with ministry officials on conservation projects, and seniors and youth programs, but is hoping to have an onsite hatchery in the future. Puntledge Hatchery personnel have been helpful.
“We hope that our community will support us with our conservation cause,” a news release states. The association supported the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) with a cash donation, and members of the Conservation Committee constructed a flight pen for the organization.
Courtenay Fish & Game “digs” the many businesses in the community that help by donating “bread” or prizes each year.
Banquet Committee members will be canvassing the Comox Valley for donations, and hope you are cool with donating again.
“We’ll be on Cloud 9 if you can!”
Tria Fine Catering will be cooking up a meal with an assortment of wild game and seafood. Tickets are $40 per person (no minors), available from the club caretaker office at 250-338-9122 Wednesday to Sunday, or the hall office Monday to Wednesday, or from Brian McLean Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd in Courtenay. Ask for Bret.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Gail at (250) 339-4707.
The association will be happy to pick up your donation. Later gator!
