Turkey lunch Sunday in Boitanio Park

People in need will be able to enjoy a turkey lunch in Boitanio Park Sunday thanks to the Sacred Heart Church’s St. Vincent de Paul Society.

People in need will be able to enjoy a turkey lunch in Boitanio Park Sunday thanks to the efforts of Sacred Heart Church’s St. Vincent de Paul Society.

For several years now the society has provided a free lunch in the park on Sundays.

The lunch this Sunday won’t be a sit-down turkey dinner, but it will include turkey soup and turkey sandwiches with cranberry dressing, says society president Lynn Paterson.

She says the society volunteers have two turkeys which they are cooking up specially for the lunch which starts at 12 noon and is usually finished by 12:30 p.m.

She says they have 45 to 55 regulars who enjoy the society’s Sunday lunches.

After everyone has had an opportunity to have a first serving, she says people can come back for seconds if there is enough food. If there is still food left over, she says people are invited to take some home.

If there is still food left after that, it goes back to Sacred Heart Church for redistribution. Normally she says the society holds a food bank bag day in the Sacred Heart Church basement on Mondays from 1 to 3 p.m.

However, this Monday being Thanksgiving, she says that event will be cancelled, until the following Monday.

Friday, Oct. 11 – Salvation Army – Thanksgiving lunch

The Salvation Army will be hosting a Thanksgiving turkey dinner today, Friday, Oct. 11 during their regular soup kitchen lunch hour.

Wednesday, Oct. 15 – Barbecue

The Blue Notes, a local chime choir, will perform at the community barbecue in Spirit Square on Wednesday, Oct. 15 to celebrate Community Living Month in the city.

The free barbecue takes place from noon until 2 p.m.

The Blue Notes will perform at about 1 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the Association of Community Living in Williams Lake.
