Saturday August 18th - the corn roast was absolutely wonderful.
Our hosts Ann and Chris Johnston were so gracious, the weather was hot and sunny, the location was wonderfully shaded and comfortable, the food was delicious, (even without the corn) and all attendees had a great time meeting new and old friends.
Please check out the photos on our photo gallery and Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/cecebewaterways/ and watch for our full report coming first thing tomorrow morning.
CWA’s 19th ANNUAL
JACK AND WILLA KING MEMORIAL “CORNLESS” CORN ROAST
– just wanted to remind you about the CWA Member and guests Corn Roast that
takes place this weekend. It is CWA’s way of giving back to its members
and is a very informal and friendly evening. Here are
Date: Saturday August 18th
and Chris Johnston and family
Corn Roast starts
at 5pm for socializing. Hamburgers and hot dogs will start flowing
from 5:30pm on . . . Unfortunately, due to the EXTREME fire ban, we are
not able to do our usual bonfire to cook the corn, so the menu has had to
change slightly. Also, unfortunately we had to forgo the Children’s games
but there will be some toys for them to play with.
Location: 126 Chapman Drive (between
Maijac and Port Carmen). Please note the new location this year.
Car parking is along Chapman Drive, and boat parking is at their dock. As in
the past, we may have to tie boats together if there are too many.
This is a
great opportunity to become acquainted with other lake members and have a
delicious BBQ dinner at the same time (hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie dogs
and burgs, lots of fresh veggies, desserts, drinks – what more could we
want? During the evening Mike (Kinsey) will be announcing and awarding
the Poker Run prize to the winning team. And it will be a fun evening mingling
with people you know and getting to know others that you haven’t met yet.
BANK – we will have our drop boxes available for any food items you are
able to donate. Cash and cheques are also very welcome and allows the
food bank to purchase those special items that are badly needed. Receipts
are given for donations $10 or more.
RUN: A further email will be coming out tomorrow which takes place
Saturday as well, between 11am and 3pm. There will be 6-7 dock stops.
Poker hands are $10 each with the proceeds going to the Burk’s Falls and
District Food Bank. You can do the Poker Run by boat, car, canoe, row
boat, by walking or any method of your choice. Best poker hand wins!
ROAST “take down” – A group of volunteers we will be meeting at the
Johnston’s home Sunday morning at 9am to clean up their property and return the
tents and other paraphernalia to the storage unit. If the timing fits
with your plans and you can help it would be greatly appreciated. It not,
don’t worry – we have it covered!
really hope you can participate in the Poker Run and then attend the Corn Roast
in the evening - it will be a wonderful day enjoying the last two CWA social
events. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
