Event: Dundas Community Fair – BBQ
Date: 1 June 2013. 11am – 3pm
Place: Yates Ave. Public School
The day started slow with 6 Lions on site. However, three of the Lions had to leave for different reasons, and that is when the rush started. With only three Lions, we all had to work twice as hard to feed the hungry crowd. One of the ladies waiting in line, seeing that we were struggling, came in and helped us with the bread.
Soon reinforcements arrived, and we were able to get things going again. Of course the appearance of Geoff Lee and Julie Owens helped only in increasing the crowd who waited to be served by politicians.
At the end of the day we ran out of stock on sausages and drinks. And the last sandwich was an onion sandwich. I don’t know what sauce was added, but it must have been good.
All in all, the day was a big success, both financially and on connecting with the community.
