Fowl Supper 2017 The numbers were down from last year's Fowl Supper by about 70 people. You never know what factors can impact events like this whether it be a hockey game in town or a football game on tv or bad driving conditions one thing you can say with certainty is that the quality of food certainly wasn't a factor. It was delicious moist turkey and all the fixings you could hope for, outstanding. In total there were about 390 dinners served including the takeout meals so while a little lower than previous years still a wonderful night for Eastend. A lot of wonderful people showed up from town and beyond, and it's just nice see so many friends at once and sit down and enjoy a meal and visit. A big hand to the Hall Board Ladies (and their silent helpers) for putting together yet another successful Supper. At the end of the evening the Hall Board Ladies presented Alan Howard from the Memorial Hall Board with a cheque for $5,000 which is made possible by the folks supporting the Fowl Supper. I would like to also thank everyone involved from the cooks and the diners, to the kids who showed up to clear tables and put away chairs, and especially to the Hall Board Ladies for continuing your great work to benefit our Memorial Hall/Tea Room. And a reminder to anyone who would like to get involved with something rewarding in your community, the Hall Board Ladies could always use more members and meetings are only a few times a year. Contact Margaret Topham or any of the Hall Board Ladies pictured inside this issue about helping. Remembrance Day Ceremony at Eastend School The tradition continues. Friday, November 10 at 2pm will be the Eastend School's Remembrance Day Ceremony to honour the sacrifices made by Canadian servicemen and women on the battlefield. The purpose is to make sure those lives lost do not drift into forgotten annals of history, nor lose the sting of their loss to family members, lest their unimaginably brave service be forgotten Kinette Town and Country Fair on Sunday Oh my such delights on site for every type of shopping appetite!
