The recent CBC news story feature on BTIERA was a good reminder to all of us that we are indebted to these community-minded volunteers for their unwavering commitment to the safety of island residents.
One way in which we can continue to express our appreciation for this invaluable organization is by participating in BTIERA fundraising events like Sunday’s Fall Dinner.
By all accounts the Fall Dinner was a resounding success. From the ham and turkey carvers and the raffle tickets sellers to the community members who contributed a dish and the intrepid kitchen volunteers, the Fall Dinner raised approximately $2200.
With well over 100 people in attendance at the Fall Dinner, it is safe to say that the community spirit of Big Tancook Island is alive and well!
The raffle draw winners are:
Hooked mat – Rodney Cross, Chair – Al Barkhouse, Quilt – Diana Hutt, Knitted Shawl – Melba Graham, Red Hat – Laura Barkhouse, Green Hat – John Elliott, Scarf – Audrey Flanders, Spaghetti or Pizza dinner – Jimmie Levy, T-shirt – Susan Apostle, T-shirt – Ava Farrar
