Because the month of August started on a Saturday the monthly supper of the Gadsby District Hobby Club will be this Saturday, Aug. 15. Don’t let this one sneak by. Steak and baked potatoes are on the menu and their famous smorg dessert to follow.
The monthly bingo following the supper starts at 7:30 p.m. The loonie pot is nearing $70 and with your help will grow before the bingo starts.
